Laboratory and Computing 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 School of Computing (SoC) advanced laboratories are configured specifically to support upper-level and graduate instruction and research in robotics, data engineering, software 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. As a result of a general donation from the W.W. Gay Company, the Construction Management Department has a state-of-the-art electrical/mechanical laboratory for their programs. The facility includes 6 electrical training modules, 6 plumbing modules, and 30 psychrometers. The facility allows the Construction students to experience first-hand installation and design of residential-scale electrical and plumbing systems. Commercial scale mechanical systems (HVAC) are included for student-demonstrations.
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.
In addition to UNF laboratories, the college has partnered with Johnson and Johnson to establish a state-of-the-art 3D printing research and development laboratory that is available for classes and research projects.
Materials Science and Engineering Research Facility (MSERF): MSERF is a multi-user research center in the College of Computing Engineering and Construction that is dedicated to materials property characterization. The electron microscopes and various other testing methods housed in MSERF support research efforts in materials science and manufacturing processes for faculty across the disciplines of engineering, physics, chemistry and biology. The state of the art facility is specially designed and built to provide optimal equipment performance and resolution down to the nano-scale.
