Projects: During your course year you may have a requirement to design a website, a web page and/or a database.
These can be hosted on Department Servers, free of charge of course. All servers are running the latest software versions and centrally managed allowing you to concentrate on the project itself. You can get access to these services on the department servers and access them from within the university or from outside.
You have the choice between a Windows based server (for .net or asp based sites) or a Linux server (for php based). Both options can be used for standard html sites. For databases the choice is MySQL or MS SQL.
To apply for all these, pleae log in to our intranet and choose the relevant icon there. All requests are processed automatically usually within 10 minutes.
Printing: As an IT student you will have a limited free quota available for printing. This quota is reset weekly and dependant on your course/module.
You also have the option within the intranet to apply for a print extension in cases where you have used your quota early in the week.
Just log in to you account and under the normal printers folder you should have a list of printers already installed, named according to their room location e.g. prn-101 for the printer in IT 101.
