The PTC Computer Centre was established in 1997 through funding from the Northelbian church in Germany and the efforts of Dr Wolfgang Krüger. The Centre provides the students and staff of PTC with computer training, access to email and the internet, and other computer related services. The Computer Centre contains 6 PCs. The network is also connected to the Library, so that students with laptops can access email, Internet, the server and the printer from their own computer.
Every staff member and student enrolled in a residential course is entitled to an email account. First year students are required to take computer skills and word processing courses. These courses are taught by the Computer Centre staff. Advanced word processing workshops are also available for MTh students and others writing dissertations or projects.
The Computer Centre staff members have responsibility for the day-to-day care of the whole PTC computer network, including the email system. It is from the Centre that the college’s local area network of about 45 PCs is managed. The Centre provides file management, backup and email services, as well as internet access and technical assistance across the network.
