These services are available to all College of Engineering members on Mosaic systems. Users can also remotely access the Mosaic system via Mosaic Anywhere. The overall system, as well as many of its components, are commonly referred to as the Mosaic System or just “Mosaic.”

The Mosaic website also contains valuable information for faculty, staff and students pertaining to their personal computers. The Mosaic Computing Support offices are located in Smith 249 and Epic 1245.

Research Computing

University Research Computing (URC) is one of several support groups within OneIT. The mission of this organization  is to support the unique computing needs of UNC Charlotte’s diverse community of research faculty by developing shared computing facilities and offering specialized services that would be difficult for individual research groups or departments to provide internally. 


OneIT is the central organization that manages the campus network and email system.  They offer many other services to UNC Charlotte students and faculty.
