High Performance Computing


Through MSU's Institute for Cyber-Enabled Research we have access to the High Performance Computing Center. The HPCC is a tremendous resource, allowing researchers to utilize seven large clusters of multi-core processors. For example, in 2012 our lab generously contributed to the center's completion of more than 1.3 million jobs utilizing over 330 cpu-years.
