Peacocks PC club (2009-2011)
The Peacocks PC club was formed by IT students to promote the "fun" aspects of computing. In addition, the PC club sponsored various community service events.
Monthly meetings included an interesting discussion topic or presentation, a film, Pizza and soft drinks, and a door prize drawing.
- How to use Facebook
- Photoshop revealed
- Google Applications
- How to make a movie with Windows Movie Maker
- Project Apollo series
- Computer recycling and energy conservation
- Video games
- 1st Place Homecoming
We firmly believe in the importance of community service. Our program encourages students to value service to others and we actively pursue opportunities to help organizations in need and the overall community.
One example is we are hosting a cyber camp for students in grades 6-9 this year. The objective is to help stimulate interest in computing, science, mathematics, and technology.
- Computer games
- Programming robots
- Digital photography
Parallel computer cluster
We have integrated parallel programming instruction into our curriculum to prepare students for the multi-core future. To further this objective, students in the IT205 Computer Architecture course developed an eight node Beowulf cluster.
The cluster is used to study parallel programming and develop multi-server web configurations.
- Ubuntu Linux
- 32 processors
- 32 GB RAM
- 3 TB storage
Internet radio station
Students in the IT310 Networking class completed an Internet radio project. The students assembled the server, installed media server software, and tested the configuration.
We look forward to establishing a web radio presence and developing content and programs for the university community.
