High Performance Computing

Our goal is to provide the University with the best possible High-Performance Computing service. To accomplish this goal, we have brought the University’s High-Performance Computing (HPC) resources together into one unified department, capable of serving the University’s research staff and faculty.

The WVU HPC Group is a community-led, peer-driven effort to ensure West Virginia University maintains a lead in the many fields of research that require HPC resources.

These fields include:

  • Molecular Physics
  • Computational Neuroscience
  • Advanced Materials Research
  • NanoSAFE
  • any field that requires powerful, low-latency computing

The High Performance Computing facilities are funded by the National Science Foundation EPSCoR Research Infrastructure Improvement Cooperative Agreement #1003907, the state of West Virginia (WVEPSCoR via the Higher Education Policy Commission), the WVU Research Corporation and faculty investments.
