EWS Labs, Requesting EWS Software
Instructions for requesting software be installed on EWS Lab workstations
The EWS Lab Workstations have a wide variety of software installed; however, we realize that some courses may require additional software to be made available to students. Engineering IT can install additional software to the EWS labs if necessary.
Instructors and TAs that are responsible for a course may request software be installed at http://go.illinois.edu/EWSSoftware
. This request form will capture all of the information that EWS staff need to complete the installation. Software requests must be tied to an academic course with an assigned CRN. EWS Labs are an instructional resource; due to the terms of our software license contracts and instructional funding for EWS resources, EWS computers may not be used for research. The instructor is also responsible for purchasing the appropriate software licenses, if applicable.
Students requiring software for their courses should contact their instructor or TA to make the request on behalf of the course.
Please keep in mind that EWS staff will need to test the software packages within the EWS environment to ensure compatibility with other software and functionality. Therefore, software requests may take up to two weeks to process; we encourage you to submit your requests early. We also recommend testing the software prior to using it in class to ensure that it is working as expected.
