Class Resource Activation

MyEngineering offers detailed instructions for requesting additional SEASnet resources such as temporary disk space, TA accounts, and access to restricted software. For example, Matlab and COMSOL are restricted software packages that can only be used for coursework. In order to ensure compliance, SEASnet requires the instructor or TA to authorize that their class needs the software in order to complete their coursework. Software may also be restricted because it has been purchased by a specific academic department for use with only their classes. SEASnet reserves the right to deny access to any software we manage.
