The School of Engineering does not have specific computer requirements for our students. Students may follow the College’s general computer hardware and software requirements policy: http://resnet.pages.tcnj.edu/required-hardware/. Students can follow their own preference for laptop or desktop computers. Some new students wait until they arrive on campus to better understand their computing needs prior to purchasing.
All engineering and other software related to coursework is available on computers in Armstrong Hall. Some students may choose to purchase and load student-versions of engineering software on their personal computer in which case the system requirements of particular programs need to be considered. For example: Solidworks, MATLAB, etc.
