ISyE maintains one computer lab available to faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students. Our computing laboratory is equipped with PC's with widescreen monitors and a full complement of software. In addition to the computer lab, many graduate offices have computer systems available for use by students and the undergraduates have access to a virtual laboratory (VLAB) provided by the College of Engineering through the use of Tech Fee funding.
The computer cluster is access-controlled via Buzzcard. Lab access is limited to all IE undergraduate/graduate students and all non-IE undergraduate/graduate students who are enrolled in ISyE courses. Students also have 24/7 BuzzCard access through the external doors from the courtyard.
Licensing for all departmental software is handled through ISyE Information Technology. Software to be installed on ISyE equipment in student labs or in student offices must be approved by ISyE IT. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for specific details.
Installation of ISyE Software on personal machines, or installation of your personal software on ISyE machines without prior approval, is illegal. ISyE laboratory machines are maintained and refreshed on a weekly basis. All non-ISyE software found installed on ISyE machines will be deleted.
If you need to download or install a licensed version of software, email email@example.com. Only administrators are allowed to install any type of software/update to any of the machines (this includes chat clients, music players, torrents, etc.)
Software will not be installed on your system without proof of a valid license.

ISyE, in conjunction with COE, is pleased to offer a virtual laboratory (VLab) to give ISyE students remote access to ISyE Software. To get access, view instructions below.
Access from the Citrix client:
Access from the web:
Access is limited to ISyE students and GT students taking ISyE courses.
NOTE: All data should be saved back to your local machine or to the H: drive before logging out of the virtual machine.
If you have any questions about this please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
ISyE maintains a high performance computational cluster configured specifically for it's users. Our cluster consists of both general departmental hardware as well as faculty-owned systems. We use the HTCondor resource management system from Wisconsin. As such, any idle cycles are available to the department at large. Faculty-owned systems have owner-priority preemption.
We maintain a full complement of software on the cluster. Programs and products include but are not limited to Matlab, Mathematica, CPLEX, Gurobi, AMPL, GAMS, Python, R, SAS, and Xpress.
Currently we have 88 systems in the cluster. Rough totals for resources are 2,252 cores of x86-64 processing with over 28.9TB of memory spread across the systems. Systems are connected via ten gigabit and gigabit ethernet.
For future HPC efforts, ISyE is developing a full OpenStack cluster to support various computing needs including but not limited to Windows-based compute, Hadoop, Apache Spark and others.
