HPC

The High Performance Computing Research Group (HPC) aims to promote the links between high performance computer users, developers and researchers across the University, throughout the UK and internationally. It brings together academic and support staff with specialisms across a number of areas in the University, including computing, engineering, chemical and biological sciences. By building on their expertise and resources, the Group aims to take the technical burden off researchers, allowing them to carry on with their own research without having to worry about “computing power”.
