The Computer Lab at Dudley Huggins building is a sister lab to FFA’s larger computer lab at the Frank Stockdale Building. This lab was constructed to accommodate mainly students pursuing courses under our department. It is available for drop-in student use during open hours unless a scheduled class is in session. Provided that our department offers a wide range of courses, instructors can request specific software for course use. Therefore, an extensive software library is maintained at the lab. For example, the course HUEC 3017 - Computer Aided Pattern Development requires a specialized software called Gerber Scientific which is only available at our lab on campus. Access to printing, multimedia and a whiteboard for classroom sessions are also available.
