Engineering Student Project Teams

The College of Engineering’s CAEN computer labs are intended to support the course-related, instructional needs of enrolled Engineering students. Recognizing that Engineering Student Project Teams provide a valuable experience to students, and that a non-Engineering student may become a member of a team, CAEN allows those members access to the labs with the following requirements:

  • The student must be enrolled in a U-M course during the current term, and must be in good standing with the University, as verified by Wolverine Access.
  • The need for access to CAEN computer labs must be established in written form by the student team’s College of Engineering faculty advisor.
    • The Engineering faculty advisor must submit a request online at Contact CAEN, or by email to caen@umich.edu, stating that the student requires access for their team duties.

Before submitting the request, Engineering faculty advisors are asked to apply principles of good stewardship, and carefully consider the following:

  • The availability of computers in CAEN labs is valuable to all other College of Engineering students, and each “seat” represents a scarce resource that they require to complete their course-related work.
  • The Duderstadt Center is open to all enrolled U-M students. It contains hundreds of CAEN computers, each providing access to the same software that is available in the CAEN labs located in Engineering buildings.
    • Using the “open” computers in the Duderstadt Center should be considered as an alternative resource for non-Engineering student team members before limiting additional seats in CAEN computer labs.

 

Any student granted access to CAEN computers should know that they are subject to all U-M policies, including those outlined on the CAEN Conditions of Use page.
