Lab Hardware / Software

We are often asked about the hardware and software that is available in the labs.  We use many different software packages (both open source and paid), and have listed the major software packages available for all IGM student use in the labs.

Reminder:  ALL IGM Students have access to the Microsoft  Dreamspark (MSDNAA) program for free personal use of Microsoft Operating Systems and software.  (Note, Microsoft Office is not available).
