Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, the lab applications are being hosted in a Citrix environment rather than being installed on each computer in all of the labs. Watching the world pass by.
Citrix is a College of Engineering resource that is an easy-to-install client software that provides access to the computing tools you'll need to succeed. Whether you are on campus, at home, or on vacation - you will have access via your laptop, tablet, or smartphone to almost every application you can find in the College of Engineering computer labs! Install the Citrix Receiver app from the Google Play Store. See your phone's manual for details on how to install new apps; From your Android phone/tablet, open a web browser and revisit this support page, then click here to automatically configure the Citrix Receiver for iOS.
