As the only team from Texas, the Texas A&M Student Cluster Competition Team with 6 engineering undergraduates is selected, together with 14 other teams worldwide, to participate the Student Cluster Competition at 2018 Supercomputing Conference at Dallas this November.
The Student Cluster Competition is an HPC multi-disciplinary experience integrated within the HPC community’s biggest gathering, the Supercomputing Conference. The competition is a microcosm of a modern HPC center that teaches and inspires students to pursue careers in the field. It demonstrates the breadth of skills, technologies and science that it takes to build, maintain and utilize supercomputers. In this real-time, non-stop, 48-hour challenge, teams of undergraduate and/or high school students assemble small clusters on the exhibit floor, and race to complete real-world workloads across a series of applications and impress HPC-industry judges
