The University offers a comfortable environment for research and study to all our grad students by providing individual office space, and complete access to university resources with highly equipped computing labs, libraries, library collections, auditoriums, video conferencing rooms, smart classrooms, and high-speed internet access, to name a few.
Our graduate classes are taught in classrooms equipped with smart digital displays with wireless Internet access. The Division of Graduate Studies of the Faculty has 6 modern video conferencing meeting rooms for remote sessions, seminars, thesis defenses, work meetings, and other activities. The school has 7 auditoriums and general-purpose rooms for seminars, workshops, conferences, and teaching.
The Systems Engineering Program (PISIS) has exclusive computer labs for teaching and research tasks. These laboratories have an installed capacity to support the sustained growth of the program infrastructure capacity.
- High-Performance Computing Lab. This is a laboratory that has a Sun Fire V440 server with 4 processors and 8Gb of RAM, a Sun Ultra 10 workstation, and 30 Sun-Ray graphic terminals. The aim is to provide PISIS students and faculty software tools for advanced research and applied projects involving industry for developing specialized techniques of optimization and decision making. The server has licenses for CPLEX, and GAMS, and MATLAB, among others.
- Decision-Making Support Computer Lab. This laboratory has computers with OS Ubuntu (Linux) aiming at providing students with support for software development based on distributed and parallel computing, GPU computing, and simulation. In this lab there are 5 HP Z230 workstations and an HP DL360 server.
- Intelligent Systems Lab. This is a laboratory for personal computers (PCs or Macs), under Windows and OS X operating systems, respectively. The aim is to provide the students with the tools and software to develop theses, preparing technical articles, presentations, develop architectures based on Intel for possible marketing software and apps.
The Department graduate school library has a over 2000 texts, 1500 grad thesis, 150 periodicals. In addition to this, the undergraduate school library has ovre 7,000 texts, 180 periodicals and 3,000 undergrad thesis, among other collections.
In addition to these school libraries, faculty and students have full access to the UANL libraries such as Raul Rangel Frias University Library and Capilla Alfonsina; as well as complete access to electronic databases, catalogs, and scientific collections through UANL digital service. This technological support allows students and faculty to access the program’s most important and largest circulation in the area of Engineering and Sciences scientific journals.
