Can I get the Engineering Base Desktop on my laptop?

Yes, but there are some restrictions. The laptop must be University-owned. Also, if the laptop has not been identified on the list of supported hardware, it may not be compatible with the Engineering Base Desktop.

Contact your departmental IT support staff for assistance with evaluating your laptop.
