All entering undergraduate students are urged to bring a laptop with them to campus. Upon
matriculation to Stevens, students are provided information about the Stevens network and how to access networked
resources from their computer. Assistance using a notebook or desktop computer and other campus computing and networking
resources is provided by Information Technology User Services via phone, e-mail, or in person. In addition, Information
Technology offers extensive documentation about technologies available on campus.
Notebook personal computers enable our students to have a clearer vision of, and deeper insight into, course content without
sacrificing fundamental knowledge and concepts. Simultaneously, students receive unlimited, unimpeded access to a wide
variety of information resources. In addition using their laptop on Stevens’ high-speed wireless network, students have access to
server systems, networked classrooms on campus, and many academic departments have their own specialized computer
laboratory for research and instruction. These consist of workstations, mid-range computers, and specialized equipment.
The result is a seamless and essentially transparent web of computing and information systems at one’s fingertips. As a result,
Stevens graduates are exceptionally well prepared to thrive and flourish in the networked professional world.
