Home Lectures & Assignments Labs Supercomputing

In this project, our current research in nanomaterials and nanotechnology is consolidated into a teaching curriculum aimed at graduate level and advanced seniors for the purpose of educating the next generation of upcoming young scientists-engineers in nanotechnology. Complex calculations are needed in making and defining nanomaterials. Thus we incorporate supercomputing as part of the curriculum. Our teaching is unique in that it combines high performance computing (parallelism, MPI), wet laboratory (nanofabrication), and molecular structure theories (statistical mechanics and molecular simulation).
