The ECE IT group provides computing support to Students, Staff and Faculty members within and associated with our Department.  We provide shared resources such as E-Mail, Web, Name Service, Network File Storage, and Application Servers for department critical computing resources in addition to teaching and research laboratories.

The ECE computing resources are available 24/7 throughout the calendar year for Students and Faculty to assist with coursework and research interests. Please be advised that each system may contain it's own set of acceptable use policies which limit access for specific areas of work.
