Abstract : This DoD HBC/MI Equipment/Instrumentation grant was awarded in October 2014 for the purchase of a supercomputer. The equipment that considered was a Cray XC40 supercomputer to restore Bowie State University to provide the BSU students with access to state of the art High-Performance Computing (HPC) tools that can be integrated with existing curricula and support our research to modernize and dramatically advance our research and educational programs. The supercomputer will support our institution in expanding our interdisciplinary research and education across many departments for the benefit or our students and our faculty. It will help in enhancing the High Performance Computing (HPC) course taught in the department of computer science as to attract more graduate students from many disciplines where their research involves HPC.
