The specific models and pricing are still being worked out and will be added as soon as possible, after which point ordering will be available through the NCSU Bookstore.
May 2, 2013 SOC: A Note about Macs
We get a lot of questions about whether Apples can be used in Engineering. While it is true that most Engineering applications are only available for Windows, a student can successfully use a Mac as their primary computer as long as they are willing to deal with a few workarounds. Read more at our Macs in Engineering page.

June 14, 2012 Mobile Maps and More!
Are you tired of running separate searches of the campus map (http://ncsu.edu/campus_map) and directory (http://ncsu.edu/directory)? Now you can do a unified search of both through a searchable Google Map at http://go.ncsu.edu/map. Developed by the College of Engineering's ITECS staff, the Google Map integrates with campus data to give you more information with less searching.
- Search for people, buildings, phone numbers, email addresses, even courses!
- Search for a person by first name and building (e.g., "Jason in Page Hall").
- Mistype or misspell people's names and still find them (most of the time!).
- Add your Unity ID to the URL to create a permalink to your directory information, e.g., http://go.ncsu.edu/map?mjvysock, great for email signatures or business cards.
- Run the app on your phone!
Make sure to keep your information up to date at
- Update My Directory Listing (Faculty/Staff)
- Update My Directory Listing via MyPack Portal (Students)
As always, our team is wide open to suggestions, so if you have an idea that will help us improve the map, let us have it! Send your feedback to email@example.com.
January 3, 2011 LabVIEW student purchasing options for $20 or $40 from e-academy
College of Engineering faculty, staff, and students may purchase LabVIEW from e-academy. The Student Install Option sells for $40 and the Student Edition sells for $20. The LabVIEW Student Edition is included with both options. The Student Install Option includes additional modules and toolkits. You may view the LabVIEW Student Edition options comparison page for the list of products for each option.
The LabVIEW Student Edition has all the features of the LabVIEW Full Development System, with one difference - the addition of a watermark. A watermark is on all LabVIEW panels (front panel and block diagram) and appears on any printouts of student edition VIs. If a student creates a VI at home using the LabVIEW Student Edition and then opens it on campus in the lab, the watermark will disappear.
The LabVIEW Student Edition may not be installed on university-owned computers.
Software upgrades are available throughout the student's enrollment. The license expires at the end of student's enrollment at NCSU or upon termination of employment at NCSU by faculty and staff. Seats are not transferable among students.
You must use your NCSU email address to purchase the LabVIEW student software.
To purchase the LabVIEW Student Install Option for $40, visit http://ni.onthehub.com/.
To purchase the LabVIEW Student Edition for $20, visit http://www.ni.com/labviewse/select.htm.
