Computational resources are a critical part of scientific research and engineering
programs. These resources play an increasingly important role in preparing students
for careers in both commercial and academics fields.
Recent advances in data acquisition, algorithm development, and computer hardware
have made High Performance Computing (HPC) fundamentally necessary to remain competitive.
The University of Memphis recognizes the importance of local HPC resources for research
Starting in 2006, the University of Memphis has maintained HPC facilities on campus.
Since its inception, this facility has enabled research programs spanning such disciplines
as bioinformatics, engineering, physics, chemistry, mathematics and more (see our
research page for details).
