Remote Desktop to OCC Computing Labs
The Office of College Computing (OCC) is offers access to Virtual computer labs for instructional purposes. These environments will offer remote access for CEAS students to utilize software such as Matlab and Mathematica
- Remote Access to lab machines: CEAS software installed in the college computer labs can be accessed by remoting into one of the lab machines at on the Remote Access page. Note: You must first be connected to UC's network through UC_Secure or VPN.
- In order to maintain this environment, sessions left active for more than 24 hours will be terminated with no notification

INTRODUCING: NorthStar – CEAS Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) Service
Remote access to much of the CEAS Engineering Software Library
CEAS students and researchers will soon be able to access some of the college-provided engineering software on a personal workstation/computer. The Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) software client/solution that will be implemented is called VMware Horizon.
Estimated NorthStar operational date: Late Fall Semester 2022
- Intended for Open Lab use for assignments and projects
- 50 virtual non-persistent desktops will be available simultaneously to deliver a subset of OCC CEAS software portfolio
- VMware Horizon client supported Operating Systems: Windows, MacOS, Linux and HTML-5 web browsers
CEAS OCC Computing Labs will continue offering access to all available engineering software.
