The Architecture Computing and Media group provides computing support for students, faculty and staff in the School of Architecture.
ACM supports and manages a range of teaching and research facilities within the school. These include computer applications such as: word-processing, spreadsheets, email, internet, computer-aided design (CAD), and computer graphics (in 2D and 3D). Students have access to basic and advanced computing equipment and operating systems as required by their studies. A helpdesk, staffed by ACM, is available to answer student, staff, and faculty computing questions.
Also, ACM manages facilities for digital still image, video and audio processing. The equipment in these facilities include a professional-quality sound studio, video editing facility, scanning and digital photography as well as full traditional photography film and print-processing laboratories. All photographic darkroom equipment is available to students for course and project use. Equipment including cameras, video cameras and audio recording equipment can be rented for use outside the laboratories.
The day-to-day running of the infrastructure is managed by four ACM group members:
- Matthew Oliver (manager)
- Fred Hunsberger (multimedia)
- Alfredo Sordo (client support specialist)
- Amy Townsend (administrator)
Architecture faculty, office staff and students should direct their IT support questions in the first instance to the Helpdesk ext. 27600, Helpdesk.
