Research as a vantage point for HPC skills development
Plymouth University has an international reputation for the quality of research in many diverse fields across the sciences, arts, and humanities. High Performance Computing (HPC) underpins world-class research in particular in the areas of Coastal Engineering, including Marine Renewable Energy, Medical Statistics and Particle Physics Theory. Inspired by research informed teaching, our students acquire HPC skills at all levels. Supported by our professional Technology and Information Services, academic staff are actively engaged in the design and maintenance of OS at our HPC Centre. The presentation will highlight some of our research successes and will illustrate our pathway to HPC skills development. It will also showcase our engagement with third parties and industrial partners.
