The Computer-Integrated Curriculum

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.
