The CET provides FIT faculty with equipment, expertise and support for their pedagogical interests and needs. The Center may be used for these academic purposes only.
The Center is available to faculty members 24/7. Users must have a current FIT faculty card that has been activated by Security to operate the front door. Please go to the Security Office on the 4th floor to have your card activated for this purpose.
Workstation seats are available on a first come, first serve basis. Usage of the video workstation can be reserved ahead of time. Contact the CET coordinator, 7-4063, to reserve this equipment.
The Centerís computers cannot store any usersí files except during work sessions. Machines are rebuilt every evening and any files saved to the local hard drive are deleted. Users may store their work on their own CD/DVD media, USB drives or personal local network storage area or on FIT's Xythos Webfiles (http://webfiles.fitnyc.edu).
The CET is not able to lend equipment or manuals. We ask that faculty not remove any lab references or manuals from the Center's premises. Please be aware that at the Center, as elsewhere, duplication of commercial CDs is illegal and not permitted. Similarly, copying of proprietary software is illegal and not permitted.
Food and drink are not generally allowed in the CET in order to preserve equipment and maintain a hygienic environment.
