The University's 22 Smart Classrooms support...
teaching and learning with easy-to-use presentation equipment. Each classroom comes equipped with a dedicated desktop with CD-RW and DVD viewing capabilities, ceiling-mounted LCD projectors, DVD/VCR units, document cameras, electronic projection screens, and high-speed Internet connectivity.
