Courses

In addition to academic research, another major type of supercomputer use is for college course work.

Students utilize these computer systems in developing skills in many computing related fields. This creates a pool of potential employees for industries such as modeling and simulation, or computer programming. Alabama has a large presence in these fields and continues to see economic growth in these areas.

Non-research course work usage of the supercomputers is typically through classes being taught at the public universities in Alabama. Students enrolled in these classes will be issued an account on which to perform their assigned class work. Some of the courses that have utilized the present high performance computing systems are listed in the following tables.
