Multimedia-based software for use in courses offered by the College of Engineering is free, licensed by the College for students.
A laptop, coupled with the wireless network available in all engineering buildings, allows students to access web-based course materials anywhere. The technology is used to improve teaching and learning and provide anytime/anywhere communications between faculty and students.
If you have issues using or downloading the software, please contact Cris Porter, Associate Director of IT Services.
In addition to the software, the University provides free access to Microsoft DreamSpark, a program that supports technical education by providing access to Microsoft professional-level developer and designer tools. Login to MyBama to access DreamSpark.
The University also provides UA Box, a secure, managed, cloud-based toolset and storage to facilitate collaboration and anywhere-access to active files and data. Visit the UA OIT website to register for a UA Box account.
