Computer laboratories used in engineering education are investigated by considering the requirements, constraints and infrastructures involved. Three primary requirements are identified: to provide access and connectivity, to support the teaching and learning process and to provide assessment facilities. The use of fat client and thin-client infrastructures in engineering education is discussed using two computer laboratories at Wits University (South Africa) as a case study.
