Fontbonne Computer Labs

Learn, Grow, and Enhance Your Expertise in the Computer Labs at Fontbonne University

Fontbonne University is a leader in STEM and technology-related educational initiatives, with unique programs designed to give you the in-depth knowledge and real-world experience necessary to propel your career forward. The university launched St. Louis’ first undergraduate major in cybersecurity and recently added a Master of Science degree program in computer science.

We have five labs on campus dedicated to our computer science and cybersecurity students. The labs provide you with hands-on experience using the most current devices and software. Students are provided the opportunity to gather together, have discussions, listen to lectures, collaborate on projects, and enjoy guest speakers.

Four of the labs are housed in the building that houses the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Each of the four labs has a dedicated purpose and serves a certain segment of the student population within the department. Two of these labs are intended for undergraduate students and are accessible to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Students need only to request access to Ryan Hall from security personnel on weekends and nights, and then use the keypad code to open the door to the lab. The fifth lab, containing 15 iMac computers, is located in the Fine Arts Department and is used for the iOS Mobile App Programming course. 

The cybersecurity lab provides you with the opportunity to practice offense and defense in a safe and secure environment. The lab is equipped with appropriate hardware, three servers and two firewalls. You will get experience configuring the firewalls to block incoming and outgoing traffic, and you have remote access to the servers 24/7.

The graduate lab is a dedicated space for students seeking an M.S. in computer science. Each computer in the lab is updated with the latest software and the server offers remote access. The remote access provides you with the capability to continue your coursework from your homes without the restrictions of computer lab hours.

The Mobile Apps Lab provides students with experience building both Android and iOS Apple smartphone applications.  Apps are developed by students and faculty in the mobile app lab and many are eventually published to the Google Play store and the Apple App store. This lab features four iMacs for iOS mobile app development as well as several iPhones and Android phones that can be used for app testing. Four additional computers with appropriate software allow computer science and cybersecurity students access to computers when the other labs are busy with scheduled classes. This room is also equipped with whiteboards, tables and chairs, which provide undergraduate students the opportunity to congregate and collaborate. The keypad lock makes this lab accessible to you 24/7.

All students in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science are able to remotely access our Linus/Ubuntu server so that they can write programs in the Unix/Linux environment. You can log onto the server from anywhere via SSH (Secure Shell) client.
