Accessing Citrix Apps using FIU Credentials

Did you know that you could access your engineering applications such as AutoCAD, SolidWorks, Siemens, and others from any secure Internet connection?
If you have never logged into EICAPPS, you will need to install the appropriate client to access your data from the FIU network.

Log into Citrix Apps

You must login to Citrix using your FIU Credentials  There are two ways to utilize the EIC Apps remotely: you can download the Citrix client or log on through the web-based client. It is strongly recommended that you utilize the Citrix client, as not all EICAPPS may work on the Web Interface.
