Dakota State University has proposed creating a new high performance computing certificate program. The proposal is officially being delivered today to the South Dakota Board of Regents in Spearfish. The program comes on the heels of DSU receiving approval to create a minor in high performance computing earlier this year.
This is designed for professionals in the field who want to expand their knowledge in high-performance computing,” [Cecelia Wittmeyer, vice president for academic affairs] said. “The certificate is designed for those working in network management or network administration who want to expand their expertise.”
Kudos to to DSU and South Dakota for creating such a program. As the general workforce in HPC begins to age, its becoming more and more evident that we need to spend a significant amount of time formally educating the next generation.
