Shimp Collaborative Computer Center
Thanks to the generousity of Harry Shimp, Jr. (ME ’79), students may use the newly-renovated computer cluster on the C level (C101) in Hamerschlag Hall. The space may be configured to create a small group study area. 45 Windows workstations are equipped with a package of engineering software. These facilities are for use only by mechanical engineering students and faculty.
