Computer resources

The Office of IT Services (DSIT) is an administrative unit of the university, in charge of providing to faculty, staff and students the computational resources needed to perform their academic and administrative activities.

The resources administered by the DSIT are:

Infrastructure

   Computer labs: These are public access labs, with 559 desktop computers. There are as well two labs for team work, with 116 desktop computers, class rooms with 287 desktop computers and seven buildings serviced by Movil Express, with an average of 100 computers. A variety of specialized software packages are installed in these computers. Faculty and students can use them to work on computational models of the concepts discussed in class.

    Networks: A campus-wide network with 1 GB bandwidth. Secure networks, data centers, databases and application servers.

    Wireless network: 100% Wi-Fi coverage across the campus, libraries, labs, and outdoor areas.

     Email: Email accounts with 25 GB storage capacity, capable of synchronization between multiple devices.

 Other DSIT services

    Multimedia: Video production and edition, event recording and videoconferencing.

    Points of attention to students: These are spaces found across campus, where students    can receive support and information on the services offered by the       DSIT.

    At the computer labs: Laptop rentals, lending of headphones, USB memories, webcams, and printing services.

    Help desk: The 3333 is a campus wide help desk phone line for the resolution of computer issues.

Research laboratories

These laboratories support the research activities performed by faculty and students of the department. Currently, these laboratories have a total area of 142 M2.

In this lab, the following equipment can be found:

   •   One GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar), with a 400 to 200 MHz antenna. This equipment is used to take high resolution shallow tomographies of the terrain.

   •   One Syntrex CG-5 gravimeter to take measurements of the gravitational field.

   •   One device to measure resistivity and induced polarity (IP). The device can be used in the field or with manual samples. For its use in the field, the device has a generator.

   •   High accuracy GNSS receptors for geodesic measurements.

Furthermore, this laboratory is equipped to cut rocks and to prepare thin sections.

Location: Q building (201A).
