Student Projects & Research Facility (MEH 137/138)

Students in several programs – Computer Science, Math/Statistics, Data Science, Analytics and Modeling, Information Technology, and Cyber Security – may be invited to joining various efforts based in Meier Hall’s rooms 137 and 138.  This lab is used by MST and CIS faculty each semester as a student projects workroom and a research support area.

The combined rooms can provide up to 12 students with individual space while allowing for easy collaboration with both faculty and fellow students. Recent upgrades, including the allocation of both additional equipment and floorspace, is a testament to the success of the original configuration. The resources provided also reflects the ongoing commitment of the University to the individual student and the importance of the one-on-one experience.

The space is equipped with upgraded PCs loaded with software suites specific to everything from software development to tackling mathematically complex questions. It also hosts various CIS parallel computing platforms and a 55′ display with input switching for meetings and technical discussions (138) and a full size projector/speaker combination (137).  It also has what may ultimately be the most popular asset – a couch described as “well suited for thinking.”
