Mandatory Hardware and Software Requirements

Digital tools are necessary for all landscape architects. The department requires all students to have unlimited access to their own personal computer. 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 College of Design Student Computer Purchasing Guide for recommended specifications and departmental requirements. In addition to hardware requirements, please note the department’s specific software requirements and recommendations.
