New computer lab opens at KMCBH

by Kalamalama staff

 

A new computer lab at the Kane‘ohe Marine Corps Base Hawaii will make it easier for HPU students to complete their educational goals on the military campuses.

The Joint Computer Lab, located in Building 219, is equipped with 12 state-of-the-art computers, each running the Microsoft Word XP operating system with Internet Explorer 6.0 and high-speed cable modem Internet connectivity.

Additional applications include MS Office Professional, Mathcad Plus 6.0, Visual Basic 6.0, Visual C++ 6.0, Visual J++ 6.0, MS Front Page, and Power Archiver 2001.
 

The lab’s capabilities, according to David Terry, Military Campus Programs associate coordinator, will especially benefit HPU students majoring in computer science, a degree considered one of the most popular for military students. “Because technology changes so quickly, it was important to update our resources to make the lab compatible for the needs of our computer science program,” said Terry.

HPU paid to install Road Runner for Internet connection in the lab and four adjacent classrooms. Instructors may tap into the high-speed connectivity in the classroom using their laptops. Two additional work stations can be carted into the classrooms in case an instructor doesn’t have a laptop.

Established to serve as a resource for the students, staff, and faculty of HPU, the lab also services the education centers of other colleges located at the Kane‘ohe base.
