The Herak Engineering Computer Center
The Herak Engineering computer Center (HECC), located in the Herak Center for Engineering & Applied Science is the central facility for general purpose computing in SEAS. This fully staffed center is available to students seven days a week, and provides general computing services over and above the extensive and diverse computer systems found in the SEAS departmental laboratories.
The center's computer facilities include over forty CAD/CAE workstations. All systems are connected to the University network which makes them able to access Internet, the computing resources of the Computer Information Services department, and the Foley library system. The Center also contains numerous plotters and printers. Software is available to support all aspects of SEAS disciplines taught at Gonzaga University. computer aided drafting and solid modeling programs are available to support the engineering graphics portion of our curriculum. Finite element, hydrologic and hydraulic structural, and mechanism analysis programs are available for the mechanical and civil engineering programs. Electrical and Computer Engineering are supported by programs for controls analysis, schematic and circuit board layout and simulation, and VLSI design layout and simulation. The Center also supports several general purpose programs, including language compilers, a spreadsheet, a data base manager, three mathematics programs, a word processor, and a project management package. A separate computer science laboratory includes additional workstations, servers, and other specialized software.
