The department provides a variety of facilities where students collaborate on projects, polish their skills, and consult with faculty. Outfitted with the latest hardware and software technology, our facilities reflect our commitment to teamwork, interactive learning, and professional education.
Students use the team rooms to conduct team meetings, rehearse presentations, review projects and plan activities.Equipped with generous whiteboard space, a meeting table, and comfortable seating for six, our 11 team rooms are an integral part of our team-oriented philosophy. Each room features a ceiling-mounted projector and a computer workstation.
The majority of Software Engineering courses are taught in our studio labs. Designed to increase student-instructor interaction, these labs enable students to understand complex concepts through an innovative combination of lectures and hands-on exercises. Each studio lab has enough computing power to enable each student to participate in both individual and team activities.
Computing today is not restricted to your desktop computer. Printers, cell phones, and life-support systems are examples of systems that could not operate without reliable software. Building real-time and embedded systems in this lab will help you learn about one of the fastest-growing fields in computing. Courses in Applied Cryptography, with an emphasis on performance and hardware/software co-design, are also taught in this space.
Two NSF grants totaling $350,000 helped us outfit this lab with the latest technology.
Designed as a flexible team-project area, this lab is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by our seniors and graduate students. The lab provides an area where our most advanced students work on challenging, real-word projects.
This lively space has become a hub where our students gather during the school day. Operated by the Society of Software Engineers (a student-led RIT organization) this lab provides space for tutoring, workshops, meetings and social events.
This lab is open 7 days a week, and is available to all software engineering majors and students taking SE courses. The lab is outfitted with 40 workstations and generous working space.
Lab Hours: M-F: 9-9; Sat & Sun: 11-8, when classes are in session
Two high-speed printers located in a central facility can be accessed from any of our workstations.
