Classrooms & Labs
Studio Classroom 2
Studio Classroom 2 consists of 24 desktop CPUs with seating for a total of 23 students. The computers are equipped with Microsoft Office, engineering software, internet software, and staff are available upon request for assistance. The classroom is equipped with a projection system, document camera, and laptop connection to facilitate demonstrations and instruction.
The classroom will be available to anyone in the Cockrell School of Engineering for classes, presentations, workshops, etc. However, it is not an "open lab"; that is, it's use is restricted to reserved times when there is a classroom proctor and/or a teaching assistant on duty. Reservations are prioritized on a first come, first served basis and can be made by contacting Danny Quiroz, 471-4016. If there is a conflict, Danny will put the two parties in touch with each other so they can work out a compromise.
If someone needs a software package that is not currently available, that software is acquired:
- by requesting purchase from the Dean (e.g., Bob Gloyd) if it is a package that will be used generally, like PowerPoint or the other Microsoft products
- by the usual purchasing procedures in the department if it is a package that will be used by only one professor or department.
Software installations require two weeks lead time. Also required is help from the professor or his/her teaching assistant to test the software to assure it is working properly before it is needed in the class and to act as a point of contact for future reference.
