Since 2001, MCSR has supported many hundreds of instructional accounts to students in over 72 courses spanning 5 Mississippi universities. We recognize that each university in Mississippi has a unique set of needs when it comes to access to high performance computing systems. For those institutions that are between heavy HPC research projects, we offer student access to stable Unix and Linux systems featuring not only parallel programming libraries but also a variety of compilers and math/scientific software applications. In addition to the free instructional accounts, which are good for one semester, and may be extended or converted to research accounts upon request, MCSR consultants are available to assist you and your students in getting started in what might be an unfamiliar computing environment, to include coming to your class for an introductory workshop . If you require a compiler or software package that is not currently installed on one of our systems, we will be glad to discuss the possibility of acquiring it in time for your course offering.
To learn more about instructional computing opportunities at MCSR, or to request a set of instructional accounts for students in one of your courses, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
