FDU and the School of Computer Sciences and Engineering provides an open lab for the general use of computer science students. The open lab is located in the basement of Becton Hall, room 104.
Lab facilities include 20 IBM Think Centre M51 PC's, printing via either laser printer or line printer, internet access, and use of university software (MS Office 2003, Visual C++, Visual Basic, JAVA, etc.).
The lab is staffed by graduate assistants, graduate staffers, and undergraduate lab assistants during normal hours of operation. Additionally, classes are taught in the open lab whenever scheduled by the faculty.
Help with programming assignments and general computer use are provided by the people currently working with in the lab.
Most Electrical Engineering and Engineering technology classes and labs are conducted in these two facilities located in rooms 202 and 203 of the Muscarelle center. These labs are equipped with modern analog and digital equipment that provides support to a large number of student and faculty projects. These labs are also installed with state-of-the art audio visual equipment to facilitate on-site presentations.

The Main Computer Labs
The main computer labs located in rooms 206 and 207 in The Muscarelle Center, form the backbone of most of the research, teaching and project work that the department engages in. Installed with state-of-the art IBM workstations, these labs have the capacity to seat 60 students. Overhead projectors and other audio visual equipment are also installed at these facilities.
