The HPC Nodal Center will focus on manpower creation and up-skilling of students, faculty, scientists, researchers, scientific users in the areas of High-Performance Computing and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Recent developments in the computational techniques in various domain and science and engineering have been strongly linked with efficient utilization of HPC resources. Therefore, it is essential to impart HPC training to the application domain researchers. On the other hand, it is also important that engineers and developers working on HPC understand the requirement posed by the domain experts. Therefore, this nodal center also focuses on organizing training programs on large scale computing in different science domains and thrives to bridge the gap between application and development aspects in HPC.
Primarily, this nodal center focuses on developing HPC aware manpower in eastern and north-eastern states. Faculties, researchers and students from different academic institute form a section of this target group. Faculty development programs will be separately offered so that faculties from different institute can equip themselves to offer HPC related courses in their university. Also, personnel from research organizations and industries will be trained through this nodal center. Courses will be specifically designed with industrial relevance in areas like CFD, materials, AI etc.
