The ChBE IT staff regularly supports the School's graduate students. From installing software on your office computer to helping connect laboratory equipment, they make sure that IT is a tool to help you instead of a barrier to productivity.
Need to know what type of processor is best for running molecular simulations or how to best backup your data? The IT staff can answer your computer questions and help you choose the right equipment to meet your research needs.
The 73-computer lab in the Ford Environmental Science & Technology Building provides access to a wide variety of software and will be especially useful to you in your first semester before you have been assigned a faculty advisor. The lab contains two black and white laser printers and a color laser printer, and graduate students are given a generous print quota each semester. Additionally, there is a scanner in the lab and a comb binding machine.
We also have a virtual lab that allows you to access much of the department's software from your own computer.
We have a large format printer so graduate students can easily print posters for poster sessions without incurring the sometimes high costs of print shops.
