Computer Requirements

Computer technology is an important aspect of the Design curriculum for all concentrations within the Department of Design. All computer applications used for classes in this department operate in the Windows-based format. The Department of Design recommends a Windows based laptop computer.  If you wish to use a Mac, please have dual operating systems installed (Windows and Mac OS).

All incoming students are required to have laptops. (For additional details, please see the Division of Information Technology's website.)

Software for first-year students is the Microsoft Office suite. Second through fourth year software requirements will be noted by the specific concentration at the beginning of each year.
