Requesting Software

Access

If you need access to a specific software package, please contact us to see if licenses are available for your academic program.

New Software

Students and faculty may request to have new software deployed to computer labs to be used for teaching purposes or design projects. If the software requires licensing, we will work with the specific department's curriculum committee for obtaining quotes and approval.

Timeline

All requests for new software require lead time to acquire licenses (if needed), package, test, and deploy. If needed for class use, please submit your request to the helpdesk at least 1 month prior to the anticipated date of use. We will try to accommodate late requests, but cannot guarantee availability.

Deployment Methods

CTS is moving towards using Drexel IT's installation of Microsoft's System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) across all of our labs for imaging and deployment. We use SCCM to populate software in the Software Center application installed on all domain joined Windows PCs. To access the Software Center, search the Start Menu for Software Center (or look under the Microsoft System Center folder).
