Every researcher added to the HPC ecosystem is automatically enrolled as a student in

HPC101: Training Camp

Building further upon Michigan Tech's policy on the Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources, it offers step by step training on topics such as remote access, data transfer, generating submission scripts and monitoring simulations, and will serve as the End User License Agreement (EULA).

Researchers will need to complete this training prior to starting production quality simulations.

Need something else?

Should there be a need to modify the submission scripts or generate them in bulk to meet a specific purpose, etc., researchers must schedule a meeting with

Dr. Gowtham

This will help ensure such modifications are mistake-free and build a knowledge base for future use by other researchers.
