MS Windows 10 (release 1909 or newer) strongly recommended*
*Some software used in these programs, such as SolidWorks and Vivado, are not compatible with MacOS (especially with the M1 processors). We strongly recommend a Windows-based machine for this reason. If using MacOS, we recommend using our department or university provided remote desktop of cloud streaming applications for coursework. A bootcamp Windows partition or a virtual machine can also be setup, but can be problematic.
