Laboratory and Computing Facilities

www.unf.edu/ccec/facilities/

The general campus computing environment, including wireless Internet access, email systems, general purpose student computer labs, most technology-enhanced classrooms, and central business systems is maintained by UNF Information Technology Services.


Specialized and advanced computing, engineering, and construction management laboratories housed within the College extend general campus computing services by adding advanced facilities supporting the wide range of research and instruction that characterizes the College’s degree programs.


The advanced School of Computing (SoC) laboratories are configured specifically to support upper-level and graduate instruction and research in robotics, data engineering, software development, game development, mobile computing, computer security, and communications/networking, utilizing Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems environments. Courses in the School of Engineering (SoE) are supported by specialized laboratories, which are equipped with advanced computer systems, engineering instrumentation, and specialized software.

These laboratories provide flexible environments suited for class work, senior design, and research projects. The Construction Management program uses computing and materials laboratories designed to support and enhance the curriculum, capstone projects, and construction materials research.

The computing environments maintained by the College make use of the University’s high-speed data network and Florida Lambda Rail, a high-speed, low-latency research network connecting the State’s universities and research institutions.
