Computing In and Around the Department
All students receive laptops through the Department of Information Technology. These laptops are important tools for students taking computing and mathematics classes, as they contain special software specifically for our students.
In addition, the department maintains sciris, a CentOS Linux server. Student accounts are made available in certain courses and for various student projects.
The cybersecurity lab is designed to provide students with hands-on experience and training in various aspects of cybersecurity. This lab is equipped with state-of-the-art hardware, software and tools for students to simulate real-world cyberattacks and defenses in an isolated network. The cybersecurity lab has different sections for different types of cybersecurity training, such as network security, web application security, cloud security, cryptography, ethical hacking, malware analysis, IoT security, etc.
Students can use the lab to practice identifying vulnerabilities in software, detecting and preventing cyberattacks, and developing strategies to mitigate cyber security risks. In addition, the cybersecurity lab is an essential resource for the university to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to address the ever-evolving cybersecurity threats faced by individuals, organizations, and governments in today's digital age.
