The Centurion University of Technology and Management (CUTM) has acquired two PARAM-Shavak super computers from the Center of Development Advanced Computing (C-DAC) to enhance its quality researches.
The supercomputers provide computational resource with advanced technologies to perform high-end computations for scientific, engineering and academic programmes that address and catalyze the research using modelling, simulation and data analysis.
The CUTM and C-DAC have also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to conduct joint action research, create learning resources for high performance computing and undertake product development in emerging domains such as Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), digital learning platforms, digital design/manufacturing, mobility solutions, computational biology, smart & climate resilient agriculture and smart infrastructure among others.
“PARAM will ensure that our students not only acquire hands-on experience in latest digital technologies but have also experienced a full product development lifecycle before they graduate,” said vice-chancellor Dr Supriya Pattanayak.
The supercomputer would be accessible to all students and faculty of CUTM at its campuses in Odisha and Andhra Pradesh, informed a release.
