Abstract

An interdisciplinary graduate course on high-performance computing. CS- 6728, was organized and offered for the first time at MUN in the Winter '96 term. The principal objective of this course was to provide a 'hands on' experience in high-performance computing. The course was designed as project-oriented; each of the participating students worked on an individual computational project related to his/her area of research. The organization of the course, the experience and conclusions are discussed in this paper. 1. Introduction For the last fifty years scientific computing has seen its capabilities grow by more than an order of magnitude each decade. What used to be called supercomputing performance, is now provided by desktop computers, which makes powerful computati
