We are currently in the process of retiring our MecE active directory domain and migrating all computers and servers to the Engineering active directory domain. Part of this process involves individually migrating machines from the MecE domain to the Engineering domain. If you are using a MecE workstation which has not yet been migrated, we will be contacting you over the next while to complete this transition.

We have recently upgraded the network hardware in the MecE building. Users should not experience any adverse effects due to this upgrade, but please let us know if you have any issues. This upgrade will greatly improve network and Internet speeds within the MecE building.
03/08/2016—Windows XP computers have lost network access
As of February 19th, 2016, Internet access has been revoked for desktop computers running Windows XP on-campus. This change was implemented by IST to mitigate security risks, as Windows XP is no longer officially supported and will not be receiving any future security updates.
