Education at the HPC²

The HPC²'s research programs are closely allied with the Mississippi State University graduate program in Computational Engineering (CmE). Computational engineering encompasses the design, development, and application of computational systems for the solution of physical problems in engineering and science. these computational systems include not only the algorithms and software required for the solution of mathematical equations describing physical processes, but also the means and methods of visualizing, analyzing, and interpreting computed results and other physical data.

The Center for Advanced Vehicular Systems at the HPC² now serves as the focus for the Bagley College of Engineering’s high performance computing activities that has been a longtime strength of the college. CAVS also is the home of the college's (CmE) graduate degree program. View the Bulletin of the Mississippi State University Graduate School.

HPC² Academic Departmental Affiliations

The Centers comprising the HPC² operate with faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students from various academic disciplines, along with a core of full-time researchers, all in a single research environment. This has created strong cross-disciplinary interaction among the faculty and students, so that the multi-disciplinary approach naturally encouraged and enabled by high bandwidth connection is now firmly established as a fundamental mode of operation in the HPC² and as an accepted mode by the academic departments and the University.

The HPC² involves faculty from academic departments in the College of Engineering, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. These faculty are engaged in cross-disciplinary research in the HPC², but remain members of their respective academic departments. Many faculty divide time between offices in the HPC² and in their respective academic departments, and strong emphasis is placed simultaneously on cross-disciplinary interaction and in sustaining the academic departments.

Graduate instruction and research by students associated with the HPC² is highly multidisciplinary, with considerable interaction among students from different degree areas on a daily basis, facilitated by a multidisciplinary arrangement of graduate student offices in the HPC² environment.
