SURP Computer Classroom

View of the SURP Computer Classroom from the back row.The CC is a newly renovated state-of-the-art computer classroom that has twenty-eight workstations arching toward the front instructor motorized adjustable height lectern [utilizing three (3) monitor screens for the instructor] and two projector screens. A teaching assistant work station and a motorized adjustable height ADA lectern flank the instructor lectern. One special aspect of this classroom is that the projectors’ resolution (1600 x 1200 pixels also known as UXGA) is matched perfectly with the student UXGA monitors, insuring that anything a student creates at his or her workstation can be projected in front of the rest of the class without distortion or compression.

In addition to regular classes, this facility is available to rent for planning and technology instructional purposes. Please contact Alejandra Quintero at surp@fau.edu to schedule a class or for classroom rental fees.
