High performance computing (HPC) and networking resources come together at OSC to create an exciting and innovative teaching and research environment.

Research using OSC resources spans a variety of disciplines—medicine, business, computer science, economics, engineering, chemistry, mathematics, physics and more.

OSC staff assist faculty and student researchers by providing workshops, one-on-one classes, web-based training and materials. Also, classroom accounts are available for teachers who want to incorporate HPC resources into courses.

OSC's education-related programs and initiatives merge with technology to impact the areas of training and outreach on a statewide and national level.

Ohio high school and junior high school students step into the world of high performance computing and networking during OSC's annual Summer Institute (SI) and the Young Women's Summer Institute (YWSI).

Summer Institute

The Summer Institute (SI) is a two-week summer camp for Ohio's brightest high school freshmen and sophomores. Participants experience the dynamic fields of high performance computing and network firsthand. OSC employs a faculty of experts in HPC, networking, engineering and the sciences to teach students computing fundamentals such as programming language, parallel processing techniques and visualization toolkits. Sponsored by OSC and The Ohio State University.

Young Women's Summer Institute

Young Women’s Summer Institute (YWSI) is a week-long program sponsored by OSC for middle-school girls in Ohio. It is designed to promote computer, math, science and engineering skills as well as provide hands-on experiences. YWSI helps girls develop an interest in these subjects by allowing them to work on a practical, interesting scientific problem using the latest computer technology.

Available Software

OSC has a variety of software applications to support all aspects of scientific research as well as licenses via our statewide software program.
