The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems has many computer labs that our majors have access to. We recognize that having access to powerful workstations is critical to the success of our students. Labs are available to all CS/IS majors and non majors who are enrolled in any CS course. Our labs are operational five days a week 8am to 6pm and anytime the building is open.
