Computing Facilities and Remote Computing
All students and faculty in the Department have access to extensive computing and information resources located in the chemical and biomolecular engineering and materials science complex on Ohio State’s campus.
A large array of software enables 3D imaging of atomic structures, diffraction analysis, mathematical modeling, casting simulations, stress analysis, and a variety of other engineering capabilities.
DVD recording, color laser printing, large format plotting, digital video recording and editing, and high-resolution scanning provide students and faculty with the tools needed to prepare professional presentations and manuscripts.
TouchSmart computers, custom tables, wall-mounted flat panel displays and digital white boards to help convey technical information. Clustered seating and interactive switching enable student teams to display their information to other team members or the entire class. Both on-campus and distance students benefit from on-the-fly recording of lectures that can be streamed live or archived for reference.
Staff and faculty have access to the Ohio Supercomputer Center located on Ohio State’s West Campus. The Center holds frequent training sessions on parallel programming and performance optimization.
