SECS Account Information


What is a SECS Account?
A SECS Account can be used for faculty members or students who are taking courses in the School of Computer Science and Engineering. Some professors require students to have a SECS Account in order to have access to some of the computer labs used for Computer Science and Engineering courses. Having a SECS Account gives faculty and students access to certain features and tools: connecting to the SECS VPN, gaining access to utilize the SECS MySQL database, and connecting to the SECS server using FTP Clients (e.g. WinSCP).
