Vistas in Advanced Computing
Workshop: Workshop on Education for High Performance Computing (EduHPC)
Abstract: This paper describes a summer program, “Vistas in Advanced Computing,” in which rising sophomores were instructed on major components of High Performance Computing including C programming, numerical methods, computer architecture, parallel programming and other topics over a period of eight weeks in the summer of 2017. Students spent 6-7 hours a day in a classroom attending lectures, studying, doing homework and coding. The students were very positive about the experience, an evaluation which is supported by the data collected in the course of the program.
