IET Receives Donation of 74 Computers from Dell

During Fall Quarter, the Dell Computer Corporation donated 74 Pentium 4-based computers with 15? flat-panel monitors for use in instruction. The computers, with an estimated total value of more than $100,000, will be used in two new computer facilities located in Hutchison Hall and operated by IET Computer Lab Management. To honor this generous grant, a plaque will be placed at each of these facilities to thank Dell for the donation. One facility was opened in November as a 30-seat open access facility (see page 14). By the start of Spring Quarter 2003, the room will be converted into a 35-seat computer classroom. A second classroom will be opened at the same time. Any department may use these facilities for use in scheduled academic classes, labs, or discussions.
