Because computers are a necessary entity in today’s business world, the College of Business has designated the necessary funds to provide students with the technology required for advancement. These funds have been allocated into providing more software, better computing systems, and more multimedia for teaching purposes.

Cabling l.jpg

All the cabling at the calc lab was replaced with category 5 cables which increase the bandwidth of our local area network from 10 MHz to 100 MHz.

Future l.jpg

With the ever changing technology, the College of Business must begin to prepare. The following are points that I believe must be covered when evaluating future growth.

Software15 l.jpg

Upgrading should always be high on the list so that current applications do not become obsolete. Possible software to be upgraded in the near future includes:

  • Office XP

  • Internet Applications

  • Web Development Applications

Computing systems l.jpg
Computing Systems

  • Operating Systems

    For security reasons, all PCs should be running on a Windows 2000 Professional environment so long as all applications are supported and as long as the hardware requirements are met.

  • Student Use

    The idea of creating a new multimedia classroom should be considered given that professors prefer teaching students on a hands-on approach

  • Professor’s Use

    All classrooms should be equipped with multimedia so that the roll-out equipment becomes obsolete.

Servers18 l.jpg

  • Upgrading

    Given that the PDC and BDC are running Windows 2000 Advanced Server, it would be ideal for all servers to be on the same platform . The possibility of adding hardware requirements may have to be considered.
