San Antonio – St. Mary’s University’s School of Science, Engineering & Technology was recently awarded a nearly $150,000 grant from the Army High Performance Computing Research Center (AHPCRC) of the US Army Research Laboratory (ARL) to establish a Linux cluster laboratory.
This new high performance computing platform laboratory will support collaborative research not only within St. Mary’s School of Science, Engineering, and Technology, but also with other educational and research institutions in the San Antonio area by allowing St. Mary’s faculty and their collaborating research partners to run large simulation models.
The new laboratory will also support innovative teaching and collaborative research in high performance and advanced computing at the undergraduate and graduate levels at St. Mary’s. Professors Wenbin Luo, Ph.D. and Djaffer Ibaroudene, Ph.D. of the Engineering Department are the principal investigators on the project and will oversee its implementation.
