Ohio’s strengths in basic and applied research are broad and deep, spanning a multitude of fields, such as economics, sociology, computer science, automotive design and signal processing. This spectrum of Ohio Supercomputer Center clients encompasses many fields of study.

Mechanical Systems

The lifeblood of manufacturing development hinges on increasing production, lowering costs and deftly overcoming any engineering problems that may arise. The backbone of any industrial facility is the mechanisms by which products are produced.

Population Impact

In 2017, 44.2 million Americans held student loan debt, totaling more than $1.4 trillion, according to the U.S. Federal Reserve. With the cost of tuition rising at most higher education institutions and enrollment increasing, these numbers are expected to keep climbing.
