The minimum specifications below have been determined with the average student in mind. New computers that meet these minimum standards will be suitable for general academic use.
However, computers used in certain disciplines, such as Architecture, Computer Science, Graphic Design or Multimedia Production may require additional power, functions, and software. Contact the department for those recommendations.
