Overview

The College of Engineering Technology has various Academic departments. These curriculums use a slew of applications to reinforce teaching outcomes and to prepare our students for their career. Documented here are those applications as well as how to obtain those applications as well as some detail about the licensing of each. 

Getting Software

While some software is only licensed in our computer labs or on our faculty workstations, here's a list of software that is available for you to download and install on your personal computers.

All Departments
