Opened at the start of the fall 2010 semester, the High Performance Computing Lab offers 23 work stations with access to state-of-the-art computer hardware and software that provides high-speed, high-capacity processing with advanced visualization, computer modeling and computer-aided design capabilities.
“The software is the type designed specifically for work that engineers do, and the computer processing is the fastest you can find on campus,” explains Julene Cahoon, a computing manager for Engineering Technical Services who is overseeing the lab. “They are especially good for mechanical, electrical, civil and construction engineering.”
Students can get technical support from lab assistants from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The lab is located at the Engineering Center, room G-150.
The High Performance Computing Lab is one of the first of a series “eSpace Engineering, Innovation and Experience” learning facilities being developed by ASU’s engineering schools.
