SC Online is carrying news from Purdue that the university is developing a course of study for students in the Department of Computer and Information Technology wishing to develop skills in HPC. Although the effort is still underway, Purdue has begun offering some courses.
“As high-performance computing becomes more commonplace in industry, businesses are finding that they need employees who know how to assemble and maintain these machines,” said Thomas Hacker, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer and Information Technology. “There is a huge unmet demand. Students who go through our program will have a definite advantage in the workplace.”
