The Department of Computing and Information Technology (DCIT) has numerous labs and facilities for undergraduate students, postgraduate students and staff members.
DCIT Data Center
To accommodate for the numerous ICT research projects the data centre has been recently equipped with three newly acquired Dell PE R710 servers, each with 40 GB RAM for virtualisation of projects. The existing Dell PE 6800 servers will still be used as special project servers. The data center also has 10 servers donated by Microsoft for HPC research. Each server consists of two 2GHz Xeon processors and 8GB RAM. The servers will be used in demonstrating Microsoft HPC technologies for research and teaching.
Computer Science Undergraduate Labs
The DCIT computer science laboratory actually consists of three labs each separated by a wooden partition. The third computer lab has been renovated to produce a postgraduate computer lab, namely Lab 3.
The other two labs Lab 1 and Lab 2 provide an up to date facility for teaching and practical work. The list below shows the computer specifications used in the labs.
