The Department of Computing Sciences offers students the latest in computer hardware and software to enhance their learning. Because computing sciences classes at Elon are small — averaging 15 students per class — hands-on learning begins on day one. The department prides itself on having a balanced teaching approach between theory and practical application.
Computer labs are easily accessible and located throughout campus. To ensure students use the latest in hardware and software, Elon replaces about a quarter of its computers each year with the latest models. This ensures that every computer used by a student is less than four years old. Also, software on each computer is updated twice annually with the latest releases from vendors. All computers are connected to the campus network and can access department servers and Elon servers.The Department of Computing Sciences has two labs exclusively reserved for its majors. One lab has 12 MacPro desktops with dual monitors and is available 24 hours a day. The other lab is a specialized network lab with 16 computers for building prototype networks. Both labs are close to faculty offices to facilitate collaboration and learning.The department has a dedicated server room containing four multiprocessor server machines and an eight machine grid computing node. The servers are configured to use the latest in Ubuntu Linux and Microsoft Windows operating systems along with the latest in server software for Web and database development. Elon students also have access to the latest software, including professional development, web, and database tools.
