What is the difference between the CAEN computers in the Duderstadt Center and those in other locations?

CAEN computers located in labs and other locations are "Engineering-only," meaning the computers are only accessible by those with eligible CAEN access.

The Duderstadt Center, however, is a campus-wide facility open to all U-M students. CAEN access is not required to use the CAEN computers located in the Duderstadt Center, and those computers offer the same CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE) available on all other Engineering-only computers.
