Web Publishing Service

CAEN offers a Web Publishing Service to the College of Engineering, using WordPress for managing content. Depending on the type of group, department or individual, varying levels of service are available.

This service is provided at no-cost to eligible participants within the College of Engineering, so there are restrictions on a website’s themes and plugins that can be supported or maintained by CAEN.
