New Grant for Supercomputing Research
The University of Florida was ganted an $8 million federal award for supercomputing research.
UF was also named one of six universities nationwide to conduct high-performance computing simulations.
The award was from the National Nuclear Security Administration.
The money is going to boost UF's high-performance computing abilities.
The principal investigator for the awars at the university says his team's research is designed to help develop better computer models that could imporve health and safety.
"Our Students will get a first hand experience with 'how do you use such very large scale computers to solve pressing societal problems, problems of national importance,'" said Director of the Institute for Computational Engineering, S. "Bala" Balachandar.
Balachandar says engineering and science students will not only use the computers-- but will be required to validate their work on the computer as well.
