LAS CRUCES – To help meet the increased demand for technology jobs, a $400,000 National Science Foundation grant is helping New Mexico State University change the landscape for high-performance computing for students and faculty throughout New Mexico over the next two years. High-performance computers (HPCs) can crunch numbers for complex problems – like those in artificial intelligence, genetics, economics or ecology – and skills with them are highly sought-after. An HPC can be considered a superpowered computer that people are able to share time on. NMSU’s HPC Team includes a group of graduate students, HPC administrators and Diana V. Dugas, principal investigator of the grant and NMSU’s director of instruction and research
