Introduction to HPC (MU Only)

Advanced course

This course is an entry level class into High Performance Computing (HPC). This course requires access to the Miami University Redhawk Cluster (our own supercomputer), thus, it’s only available to students from our home institution.

  • A strong desire to learn Linux.
  • Familiarity with any of the following languages R, Python, Shell, Matlab, MS-DOS, or similar
  • Familiarity with file paths on a computer (for example C:\Users\muellej\Documents\CLUSTER)
