Supercomputing Division, Information Technology Center, The University Tokyo

Educational use

The Information Technology Center, the University of Tokyo (hereafter, “the Center) provides supercomputer resources for practices in graduate and undergraduate classes.
There have been moves to use supercomputers as a practice tool for the use of methods applied to a wide range of research fields, including climate, fluid analysis, structural analysis, molecular science, nanotechnology, and aerospace. Supercomputers are already being used for practices related to structural analysis, Earth science, and fluid-related subjects in specialized undergraduate courses as well as graduate classes.
The use of supercomputers in education is anticipated to contribute to human resource development and the expansion of use of such systems. Hence, the Center accepts applications, at any time, for use in courses and workshops (including intensive courses) conducted by teaching faculty of tertiary institutions, at graduate schools, undergraduate schools, and vocational institutes. (Please submit applications early, with a sufficient lead time before the start of use.)
Educational use is not limited to use within the University of Tokyo. Applications for use outside of the University of Tokyo are also accepted.
