Welcome to the College of Engineering Access Grid



The College of Engineering Access Grid™ facility is located in the Engineering Science Building. The UCSB College of Engineering Access Grid™ node is one of hundreds of registered nodes worldwide.

The Access Grid™ is an ensemble of resources including multimedia large-format displays, presentation and interactive environments, and interfaces to Grid middleware and to visualization environments.

The Access Grid™ facilitates group-to-group interactions within the global community. Unlike traditional video or desktop conferencing, which focuses on one or two people at a site, the Access Grid™ is designed for small group (two to ten people at a site) meetings between geographically disperse locations.
