VLE information for Mac users

Many of the specialized software used and/or taught at Stevens is Windows-based.

For Mac users, using the VLE is a great method to utilize these various software applications without the additional cost of purchasing Parallels, sacrificing hard drive space, or processing power to install Parallels on the Mac for a Windows 7/10 machine to run, which causes slower performance on the Mac machine.

First step - download the Citrix Workspace App.

Next, visit stevens.edu/vle to log in and get started. Below is a list of desktops that are available:

  • Windows 7 and 10 desktops with MatLab, Mathmatica, Microsoft Project and Visio installed; available for all faculty, staff & students.
