The two CIP pools of the departments of electrical engineering, electronics and information technology (EEI) and materials science (WW) are run together as 1 CIP pool. The cooperation enables the students to work in one of the rooms.

At the end of 2018, with a large investment, all computers were replaced by new, powerful machines, office monitors with high resolution were purchased and all workstations were equipped with ergonomic office chairs.

A complex and stable system with Linux, virtualized Windows and many software products has been created through close cooperation with the regional data center in Erlangen (RRZE).
