Scientific computing has become an important third axis in the development of science in conjunction with theoretical and experimental studies all across the globe. Oceanic and Atmospheric Forecasting, Space Propulsion, Electromagnetics, Hypersonics, Astrophysics, Biology, Finance, Disease Control, etc. are few of the subjects which are greatly aided by scientific computing. This course will broaden understanding of global scientific problems and how high performance computing (HPC) can play a role in improving human conditions in developed and developing regions specifically for air and water related problems. There is a dire need to train researchers and students in the effective use and programming practices of these HPC clusters. The curriculum introduces the basics of modern computer architecture and parallel computing machines, and demonstrates associated techniques for efficient programming and model development for example problems in fluid dynamics. Specific collaborative project tasks as a part of the internationalization program will allow students better intercultural learning in the global community.
