 Computer Types

 Computers at Tech Central are divided up into three types. General, Science-Engineering (Solid-works) and Hospitality. These Computers host specialized applications specifically as per requirement by faculties. For example, Science and Engineering computers will have applications which hospitality computers may not have. However all the computers have the same general image which consists of the basic applications such as Microsoft Office Suite.
