TWU classrooms are also equipped with the latest instructional technology providing optimal classroom learning experiences. Students have a wide selection of software resources available to support their studies, including statistical analyses, word processing, and discipline-specific courseware. The High Performance Computing (HPC) system gives students access via faculty sponsorship to cluster computing sources for data-rich studies.
