General Lab Information



All students are given engineering accounts at the beginning of each semester when class rosters are processed for the labs. These engineering accounts require the users' NetID as their username and a password that is particular for this account and not related to their general NetID password (required for access to myRutgers, ScarletMail, etc.). If a user forgets their password, they may change it by going to while connected to the Rutgers network. If a student does not have an account, the student must reach out to their professor to see if the professor has submitted their roster to ECS for processing. If the student still does not have an account or is not currently in a class and needs an account to access the computer labs, please go to room EN-B124A during the Fall and Spring semesters for further assistance.

Faculty and staff may also use the computer labs and will need engineering accounts to do so. If a faculty or staff member does not currently have an engineering account, they may stop by room B124A during the Fall and Spring semesters or submit a support ticket at

Additionally, the engineering account is used to access, (an alias for, and our web server
