NSTU Department of Parallel Computing Technologies

Technical University of Novosibirsk has established the Department of Parallel Computing Technologies, staff members of the Department are recruited among the staff members of the SSD (part time positions only). This is a special form of education organization in Russia intended, on one side, to involve active researchers of RAS in teaching of modern disciplines, and to provide for students the access to the modern equipment and technologies concentrated in research institutes of RAS, on the other side.

The Department is concentrated to teach in parallel computer science including theoretical foundations, parallel languages, systems and computing technologies, methods and tools for parallel solution of big size problems. All the students are involved in SSD research projects, they have an access to the SSD equipment, software, technologies, library, to any scientific materials. As the members of the SSD research teams the students should accomplish a small investigation (research subproject of one of the SSD projects).

Every year the Chair offers up to 5-7 M.Sc. and the same number of Ph.D. programs.


NSU Department of Parallel Computing

NSU Department of Parallel Computaions was founded on 3rd April, 2002. Main subjects of research are:

  • parallel computations models
  • high-performance computer architecture
  • system and application software

Staff members of the Department are recruited among the staff members of SSD (part time positions). Working actively in parallel computations research area and having teaching expirience in defferent universities in Russia and abroad, having their own educational cources developed, chair employees provide high level of education and students' papers.

Graduates of the Department have speciality No. 552802 "High performance computer systems". 18 Masters of Sciences and 3 engineers are graduated. The Department students are involved in different projects, devoted to complicated scientific and application models of natural phenomena and technical devices, parallel programming languages, systems and technologies, computations models and the most recent computer architectures. These scienific projects underlie students degree works.

The Department is equipped with modern hardware. Computer class with 8 machines was created for students. Students have access to Siberian Supercomputer Center cluster (32 Alpha processors), NSU Pentium III- based cluster (34 processors), NSU Opteron-based cluster (8 processors), Joint Supercomputer Center cluster (768 Alpha processors).

Students with good results are welcome to do a degree work, as well as enter magistracy or post-graduate cource.
