MSc in HPC: Cluster Building Challenge

The University of Edinburgh -
The MSc in High Performance Computing (HPC) teaches students the tools and techniques they require to program modern parallel computers. As part of the first University of Edinburgh Innovative Learning Week, we offered them a "Cluster Building Challenge".

The MSc focuses on using modern HPC facilities for computational science applications in both research and industry. System administration is not taught, as it is assumed that students will use computers that are maintained and supported centrally. However, as HPC is at the leading edge of computing technology, a certain level of practical experience of "under-the-hood" system administration can be quite useful in understanding how machines actually work and may be helpful in diagnosing the causes of any unexpected behaviour.
