High performance computing

The College of Engineering, Design and Computing is a hub of opportunities for students and faculty to work at the cutting edge of technology. The college has created strategic partnerships for High Performance Computing resources, offering infrastructure for processing large amounts of data and simulations. We recommend following the progression below to identify which resources are best for your project and to find information on how to move forward.


1.) Basic laptop

Start with whatever device you use every day, such as a basic laptop.

2.) Powerful desktop


The next step up is a powerful desktop designed to run large simulations. Cost should range between $2000 - $3000.

6.) Cloud


If none of these resources are powerful enough to meet your needs, it's time to head to the cloud. Contact your IT staff to learn how.
