Mandatory Laptop Lease Program:

Personally dedicated laptop computers are an integral part of our computer-integrated curriculum. All students are required to lease a high-end laptop computer from the college. By leasing the laptop computer, the student is provided with continuous access to state-of-the-art application software packages that could not be made available through traditional computer laboratories or through student-owned computers. The laptop configurations will include the MS Windows operating system and networking software for connection to the college network system. Application software provided by the college includes Autodesk Inventor, AutoCAD Mechanical and MCL II Robot-Programming. Several other application programs will be provided by the college as required throughout the program. Students will be required to purchase some additional software.
