The department has a wide variety of computer resources available for both students and faculty. Most resources are housed in Briggs Hall, which was renovated in 2018.
Thanks to a National Science Foundation grant authored by principal investigator Dr. Brian Larkins, the department has built a supercomputer cluster that students and faculty can use for research projects.
The cluster system supports both high-performance and high-throughput workloads with an overall system capacity of 1,584 cores, 9TB of memory, and 504 TB of storage. It consists of a login server, storage server, 44 compute nodes, and a 100Gbit/s InfiniBand interconnect network.
Students and faculty can access the cluster by contacting Professor Larkins.
Briggs Hall houses a virtual reality lab which contains equipment allow users to create endless virtual environments such as exploring a model of the human heart or navigating the ocean. The lab was funded by a National Science Foundation grant authored by principal investigator Dr. Betsy Sanders. This grant also funded an auxiliary motion-capture lab in McCoy Hall.
In Briggs Hall, the department also has a dedicated hardware lab and two teaching computer labs.
