Welcome to the online "COE CONNECT" workshop for new engineering students!
The worksheet below will help you get started using your computing and network resources at OSU and the College of Engineering.
If you don't see the live support widget, you can send emails to firstname.lastname@example.org, or submit a help request ticket at https://support.engineering.oregonstate.edu
From your laptop and mobile phone, connect to the Wi-Fi network "eduroam".
eduroam allows OSU students to connect to Wi-Fi networks at many other universities around the world. We encourage OSU Engineering students to use this Wi-Fi network both while at OSU and traveling.
For Android users: Security: WPA2 Enterprise (or 802.1xEAP), EAP Method: PEAP (PEAPv0/EAP-MSCHAPv2), Phase2 Type: MSCHAPv2

Two factor authentication is becoming the norm for secure authentication on the internet. In a nutshell, it requires not only your password, but an additional confirmation from a personal device, such as a mobile phone, tablet, or smart watch. DUO enrollment is required for access to many campus network resources.
You will need your personal device (phone, tablet, etc.) handy for this task.

Running the OSU VPN, or "Virtual Private Network" on your laptop or home desktop will allow you to securely access campus-only network resources as if you were actually on campus.
We want to make sure you can access your OSU email account, so please take the following steps:
- Browse to: https://oregonstate.edu/office365
- Login to Microsoft 365 > Outlook
- Verify that OSU email is working. This is your official OSU email account.
Kumo allows you to map your cloud storage accounts so that you can access them from Citrix or when using an Engineering Computing Lab desktop.
Browse to: kumo.oregonstate.edu
- Click "Log In" (green box)
- Enter ONID credentials
- Authenticate your OSU Box account
Citrix will allow you to access most software available in COE computing labs without having to actually install it on your laptop! You can even launch a full desktop as if you were sitting in the on-campus lab itself.
Follow the instructions on this COE IT webpage: it.engineering.oregonstate.edu/citrix
Add our engineering network printer to your laptop and print to ANY COE lab printer.
Follow the instructions at this COE IT web page: it.engineering.oregonstate.edu/adding-printers
You can practice printing an actual document (any page), but you will need to physically release your document at the designated printer.
Printers are available in ALL open labs. If you chose not to release your job, it will expire in one hour.
Your engineering network home is mapped to the Z: drive on engineering Windows computers.
To access this "share" from off campus, you will need to run the VPN connection you configured in step 4 of this worksheet above. The VPN is not needed when on campus and connected to an OSU network.
Your account has a 6GB quota and is backed up hourly. This makes it a good place to store important work - if you accidentally delete something in this share, we can restore it from the most recent backup!
