Many courses offered by the college place strong emphasis on the use of computers. Entering freshmen receive instruction and undertake academic projects involving computers. While most students choose to obtain personal computers, several hundred computers are available in laboratories in the Engineering Center, and over 1,000 are located throughout the campus for student use.
More computing information may be found in engineering department summaries. The Office of Information Technology provides its computer recommendations at www.colorado.edu/oit/recommendations.
