Bentley's state-of-the-art computer technology is visible no matter where you are on campus. There is at least one computer in each classroom, and many are equipped with computer consoles for each student. There are also power and network ports for each individual student’s laptop in about half of the classrooms on campus. In the front of each classroom, there is a computer hooked up to a projector that allows professors and students to showcase educational material, pull up a Web site, or run a PowerPoint demonstration on a large screen in front of the class. The laptops themselves are advanced, too. Bentley has collaborated with HP to bring students the most recent technology available. Often the school is the "test subject" for new hardward and software that is not even on the market. If there is a change or update, that is easy to access as well. The Computer Resource Center (CRC) is in the basement of the library and can help you work out any kinks, find and delete viruses, and repair any other issues. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, and there is usually a reasonable wait time, if any.
The wireless network blankets the campus. This means you could be sitting outside on a sunny day, browsing on your laptop. Within the network, there are also many resources available to students. The “M: drive” is a resource that allows students to save files on a network drive that is accessible from any computer anywhere on campus as long as the student is logged in under their Bentley username and password. There is also the Bentley Virtual Lab, which allows students to access various programs that might be needed for use in a certain class. One thing is for sure—every Bentley student, no matter what major, will graduate with an advanced knowledge of the latest computer software and networks that will place them above the rest of college graduates across the country.
