Chemical Engineering Undergraduate Computer Lab Refresh
Department of Chemical Engineering
The Chemical Engineering department is seeking funds to update the dedicated location of computing resources for the current 220 undergraduate students. The current array of desktop computers within the Benson Hall Undergraduate Computer Lab have become technologically obsolete after six years of hardware and software support from the department. The funds requested will be used to purchase 38 superior replacements, Apple iMac computers dual booted with macOS and Windows 10, as well as equipped with high performing computing power. These requested replacement workstations provide students with greater accessibility to the software required for their coursework, projects, and accelerate growth of the skillset necessary to succeed in their field.
