Student Computing Technician

Student Computing Technicians in our Walk-In Support Center provide one-on-one software and hardware support for students, faculty, and staff. Student Computing Technicians support Macs and PCs. We provide support for software problems, including computer viruses, spyware, and general issues.

SCTs also provide best-effort hardware support, including helping students install new hardware in their laptops, and helping students recover academic files from broken hard drives. Our data recovery service is free to the students, faculty and staff that we support; comparable service off-campus could cost a student thousands of dollars.

An SCT on a typical shift in the clinic might help a client install antivirus software, help another client add more memory to their laptop, or help a third client recover homework that was accidentally deleted from their laptop.
