At HCC, each student will learn with technology as a tool for their particular field of study, as well as about technology as a transforming force in society. The College is committed to maintaining a campus that is equipped with the technology necessary to function as a model learning institution. HCC maintains more than 1000 computers on campus; state-of-the-art computer labs; and over 100 smart classrooms equipped with computers, data projection; as well as VHS, DVD and CD for audio. In addition, the College is home to some of the latest equipment for use in skills labs for the health sciences programs, including imaging technology.
The Technology Council meets regularly to review, plan, and assess the College's use and future needs in technology. Comprised of broad representation from within the College, the council is particularly concerned with how HCC can effectively apply technology to the success of teaching and learning programs and services, as well as the administration and management of the College.
