The Technology of Instructional Engineering Systems (TIES) office is the internal technical support unit within the College of Engineering & Technology. This office works in collaboration with Central IT. The primary focus of the "TIES" Office is to support the software and computer technology utilized withn the college.
We reccomend the following system configuration:
WCU has a discounted Dell store that can be accessed at the Department of IT's Purchasing Page
Some of the software that CET utilizes can be downloaded and installed free on personal computers. This software can be accessed within the CET Canvas course. Current students can access the course by logging into Canvas
Most of our engineering applications are available via our VMWare Virtual environment. Just visit Virtual.wcu.edu and download the client. After downloading the client, login and click on "CET Specialized".
Some computer support is handled through central IT, while other support is handled in-house within the TIES office:
|Engineering Software Install or Problems||TIES Office|
