MEC gets super computer lab
The lab supports high intensity computations both for Artificial Intelligence applications and for complex simulations in physical sciences and engineering covering different aspects of fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics, integrated and optimized engineering design, molecular physics and related fields.
To be a success in today’s rapidly evolving technological scenario, it is imperative that we expose our students with the latest technological advancements and get them to work on the best of products available globally, said Yajulu Medury, Director, MEC.
The MEC Supercomputer Lab comprises of the DGX-1 supercomputer platform that includesa complex stack of components and software including AI Deep Learning frameworks, libraries and drivers. Our students will be trained on this platform that forms the base for most globally recognized initiatives, he said.
A Dassault-Systemes based 3D-experience package is also being installed in this lab. This package is an overlay on a suite of software that includes CATIA, DELPHI and other related modules, and facilitates Augmented Reality – Virtual Reality based immersive experience.
A set of 30 workstations coupled with a Server are being installed and linked to the other platforms of this laboratory for facilitation of the complete 3D-Experience package.
This will enable the attainment of a 3D-Experience Centre of Excellence at this lab. It is home to two of MEC’s Centers of Excellence: Artificial Intelligence and 3D-Experience.
