The Laboratory and Computer Service (hereinafter referred to as the LCS) is a special-purpose workplace of the Faculty of Safety Engineering, VSB – TU Ostrava. It was established at the same time as the Faculty in 2002. The model of centralized operation and administration of specialized workplaces was chosen mainly to avoid duplication in equipping laboratories and classrooms by individual departments, and to achieve better use of the premises and acquired instrumentation.
