Welcome Back Students

08-16-2014 @ 9:00am,

Welcome Back Students! A few things you will notice coming on campus this fall:

First, the Eng Parking Lot (Lot 45) Has been repaved.

Next, they are still working on improvements to Central Ave. Expect lane closures and delays if you take Central or park in the Central lot.

The computers in the TAF labs have been upgraded and a new image has been installed. Some of the old computers are being placed in ET labs.

Hope you have a wonderful semester......see you in class!

Update on Central Ave Project

08-18-2014 @ 5:17pm,

Progress is continuing on the Central Avenue Safety Improvement Project. The timeline is as follows:

  • August 18. The westbound lanes at Zach Curlin and Central will return to only one lane closed (the outside lane). Decorative concrete sidewalks are being completed on both the north and south sides of Central. Additionally, wrought iron fencing along the south edge of the Central Avenue parking lot will be installed.
  • Aug. 18 – 25. MLGW is scheduled to begin removing the overhead power lines on the north side of the street, which will allow installation of new street lighting.
  • August 19 or 20. The service drives on the south of Central, near the Art and Communication Building and the Theatre Building, will reopen.
  • August 22. The new traffic signal at Zach Curlin and Central should be operational.
  • Mid-September. The outside lanes of traffic will reopen, and the inside lanes of traffic will be closed for installation of the center median.
We appreciate your patience as we work to improve safety on Central Avenue and the north side of our campus. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact 901-678-2121.

Password Change Policy Modified

06-01-2014 @ 9:08pm,

As a part of [ITD's] ongoing examination of campus processes, the University is implementing a policy change to enhance the overall strength and security of account passwords. These changes address both the frequency and complexity of password changes.

Beginning June 9, 2014, all University of Memphis students, faculty and staff will be required to change their UofM UUID password every 180 days. This policy change will take effect with all passwords changed on or after June 9, 2014.

You will not be required to change your password until your current expiration date is reached. Information Technology Services (ITS) will send automated email reminders 14 days and 7 days prior to your password expiration.

In addition to the change in frequency, changes are also being implemented in the minimum requirements for passwords. These changes will provide additional security by increasing password strength and making passwords more resistant to attack. The new minimum requirements for passwords are:

  • Must be at least twelve (12) characters in length.
  • Must contain characters from at least three of the following categories:
    • lowercase letter (e.g. a, b, c)
    • uppercase letter (e.g. A, B, C)
    • number (e.g. 1, 2, 3)
    • special character (e.g. _ ! $ % ^ * + - )

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
