A Student Technology Fee grant for $10,000 to the High Performance Computing Club will provide UW students’ access to cloud computing for data-driven scientific research and academic projects in a wide range of fields. Students can apply for cloud credit and learn how to take advantage of the cloud’s capacity for massive-scale computing as well as learning best practices for cost management and data security. Open to all undergraduate and graduate students, the club also has received Student Technology Fee funds to use Hyak, the UW’s shared high performance computing cluster.
