Laboratories

Mac Lab


The computer science and engineering Mac Lab is located in Lawrence Street Center, room 844. The lab includes 24 iMac machines that have dual-boot capability, allowing the possibility to develop for Windows and Macintosh applications. Because the Mac OS X operating system is built on BSD Unix, students have full access to all the tools to which unix developers have become accustomed.

In addition to this hardware, the lab has a smartboard, which is advantageous for both pedagogical and technological reasons. This lab is among the best on campus for teaching the full curriculum in computer science and engineering.

Currently the lab is used for teaching introductory programming such as C++ programming, algorithms and data structures. It is also now being used for mobile application development.
