Computer Facilities:

Computer facilities at IITGN have been developed with high-end hardware, a wide range of software and excellent connectivity so that students, faculty and staff can carry out their work without interruptions. They can view and download information efficiently for their research, home assignments and other scholarly activities. The LAN setup integrates the entire IITGN community into a single unit. The Institute premises and the student hostels are Wi-Fi enabled. Important scientific software such as Mathematica, PSCAD 4.2, STATA 11.1, Matlab, ANSYS Multi-Physics Simulation Software which includes a variety of CFD softwares such as Fluent, ICEM-CFD and CFX and Finite Element Softwares for Structural Analysis and for problems involving multi-body dynamics, STAR-CCM+ CFD Software and Autodesk Inventor CAD Softwares.

Two computational labs with networked multi-core desktop computers have been set up for teaching computer related courses and for executing computational projects. An initiative to set up a high performance computing (HPC) platform for advancing research and teaching in computational science and engineering and the promotion of the use of GPU and CUDA programming for HPC has been taken recently with the establishment of the IITGN-Fujitsu-Nvidia Computational Design Studio consisting of 7 networked workstations set up with partial support from Fujitsu and Nvidia.The main compute engines of this system are the two Celsius R-670 workstations each consisting of 24 CPU cores, 48 GB main system RAM (i.e CPU cores) and 2 Terabytes of HDD Storage and 2 Tesla C2070 GPU cards consisting a total of 896 CUDA cores and 6GB GPU/Graphics RAM. This gives an initial configuration of 48 CPU cores and about 1800 GPU cores.  The remaining 5 high-end workstations (each consisting of NVIDIA Quadro 2000 cards, 1 GB memory with 1 TB storage, 4 CPUs and 4GB RAM )  form a design studio corner to facilitate high fidelity computational modeling of engineered systems as well as to serve as a platform for a variety of CAD/CAE softwares enabling and supporting product design, scientific visualisation etc. The main compute engines will subsequently be placed on GARUDA, India's Grid Computing Infrastructure.
