View of the SURP Computer Classroom from the back row.

The Computer Classroom is a state-of-the-art computer classroom that has twenty-eight workstations arching toward the front instructor motorized adjustable height lectern three (3) monitor screens for the instructor and two projector screens. A teaching assistant work station and a motorized adjustable height ADA lectern flank the instructor lectern. One special aspect of this classroom is that the projectors’ resolution (1600 x 1200 pixels also known as UXGA) is matched perfectly with the student UXGA monitors, ensuring that anything a student creates at his or her workstation can be projected in front of the rest of the class without distortion or compression.
