The Center is based upon the demonstrated strength of the UTC Science and Engineering faculty and strategically focused on synergistic new programs that will collectively advance the state of the art in computational simulation in solving complex problems in the physical sciences that require and utilize scientific supercomputing. This focus will encompass research on computational simulations for analysis of the physical processes embedded in real problems in science and engineering, as well as computational approaches that synthesize these simulation capabilities into efficient and effective low-cost solution tools and capabilities across multiple disciplines.
