Research Computing

The nature of research across the world is changing rapidly due to ever expanding advances in computing and communications technology. In the academic and research arena, High Performance Computing (HPC) utilizes multiple processors to perform concurrent jobs in parallel for solving large cutting-edge research computation problem. ITS provides centralized high-performance computing resources and support to the University researchers in all disciplines whose research depends on large-scale computing with the use of advanced hardware infrastructure, software, tools and programming techniques.

With increasing number of research making use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA), ITS has also setup AI computing platforms with emerging GPU resources and built-in AI framework to facilitate the research process.  

The goal of centralized Research Computing Services is to maximize institutional resources, enhance research capabilities, effectiveness and remain competitive.
