Fall 2011 - Summer 2012
In addition to the services provided by McGill's Information Technology Services, the Faculty, in conjunction with its departments and schools, maintains specialized computing and information resources in support of teaching and research. These vary from desktop computers distributed throughout the Engineering complex to very high-performance scientific workstations found in the research laboratories. Each unit organizes and maintains facilities that are designed around specific roles, e.g., CAD/CAM, microelectronic design, software engineering, circuit simulation, process control, polymers, structural mechanics, metal processing, etc., in addition to systems dedicated to administrative support.
The role of the Faculty is to provide access to computing resources on a 24-hour basis and to provide services that are not covered by individual units. Further information is available at www.mcgill.ca/emf.
