Computer Facilities

Computer LabThe Department of Horticulture is fully Macintosh oriented, with the exception of certain IBM clones that service laboratory equipment. All faculty and most staff have a Macintosh on their desktops. All are linked for electronic mail, file transfer, Internet, and printing capabilities. For undergraduate and graduate students, we maintain a 1000 sq. ft. facility containing 12 Power Macs and 4 Mac IIs each with a high resolution RGB monitor, one Mac with a SuperMac 19" Trinitron monitor, two Pioneer LaserDisk players, and three ImageWriter II's. The computer lab is used extensively by the landscape design classes. Word processing, graphics, 35 mm slide preparation (via Presentation Technologies Montage FR2) and statistical data analysis software programs are available to faculty and students.
