Upon matriculation to Stevens, all entering undergraduate students are provided a notebook computer and 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 at www.stevens.edu/itwiki.
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 to the notebook computer, server systems, and notebook-networked classrooms on campus, most academic departments have their own specialized computer laboratory for research and instruction. These consist of workstations, midrange computers, and specialized equipment from most vendors. 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.
