ViAComp is the Virtual Academic Computing platform of the College of Engineering (CoE). ViAComp provides remote access to all the engineering software used in teaching undergraduate and graduate courses.

ViAComp Laptop Initiative

All CoE students should have a laptop to interface with ViAComp.

ViAComp offers:

  • 24/7/365 access – through the web, either in wired or wireless mode – to the CoE course software, FREE, with each student being allocated his/her roaming storage space.
  • Students no longer have to be on campus or physically in CoE buildings to work on assignments since ViAComp is accessible from anywhere!

Here are the recommended configuration from Dell. You can use other brands of computers. Note that new Apple laptops (M1 Processor) are NOT supported anymore.

You can purchase a laptop at any computer store, including the Bookstore of University of Miami, where all University of Miami students can receive a discount on computers and software.

The University of Miami Information Technology has a dedicated staff and SUPPORT SERVICES for all your computer needs. You can find information about the recommended configurations for Windows here.

If you have any questions about the systems required, please contact Dr. Khaled Abdelrahman at (305) 284-8184 or at kzakaria@miami.edu with any questions.
