The Computing Commons and EECS Computer Labs

The EECS department provides its students with more than 500 computers in thirteen laboratories. EECS computers run either Windows or Linux operating systems with powerful engineering specific software tools including MATLAB, CADence, and Xilinx packages. The Computing Commons, on the first floor of Eaton Hall, is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

EECS Hardware Labs

Nine state-of-the-art laboratories provide students with experience in building, programming, testing, and debugging digital circuits, processors, and FPGA-based systems. A range of PC-based development platforms and instrumentation, such as spectrum analyzers, oscilloscopes and signal generators, are available at each workstation. Workstations support hardware design languages and programmable logic implementation. EECS students may checkout testing kits, tools, and other equipment from the EECS Shop.

The EECS Shop

Experienced EECS Shop attendants assist students in safely learning the art of engineering. The Shop houses advanced equipment including etching, drill, and SMD soldering stations. In-house milling ensures a quick turn-around of precise, reliable, and cost-effective fabricated boards for student projects. EECS students may checkout testing kits, tools, and other equipment from the shop. Shop personnel are happy to help students learn how to operate different machines or answer questions about equipment.

Research Facilities

EECS students and faculty work on multi-million dollar interdisciplinary research project at state-of-the-art research facilities including, the Center for the Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS), a NSF Science and Technology Center, and the Institute for Information Sciences (I2S).
