Hardware and Software Requirements:

The department requires all students to have unlimited access to their own personal computers. Because of the professional application of complex graphic programs and large data files for most coursework, the department’s computer requirements exceed the average user’s computing needs. See the Student Computer Purchasing Guide on the College of Design Technology Services blog for recommended specifications and departmental requirements. In addition to hardware requirements, please note the department’s specific software requirements and recommendations.
