ECU recommends all students have access to a computer but does not require a specific type. A computer should meet your academic needs including any specifications and software required by your academic program.
The Student Computing Initiative program includes the ITCS Pirate Techs staff who work with academic programs to select system requirements. Dowdy Student Stores' Tech Deck team work with vendors to negotiate the best pricing possible for students. The selected systems also conform to any special configurations required by your academic department.
Representatives from ITCS Pirate Techs and Dowdy Student Store's Tech Deck conduct Q&A informational sessions at freshman orientations and can assist you with a computer purchase. Please contact us for answers to your questions about computer selection.
