About us

Scientific computing, also known as supercomputing or high performance computing (HPC), relies on advanced computing capabilities to understand and solve complex problems in a variety of research disciplines. Within Ghent University, these services are offered by the HPC-UGent team, part of the central IT department.

HPC-UGent is a strategic partner of the Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC).

Our mission

HPC-UGent provides centralised scientific computing services, training, and support for researchers from Ghent University, industry, and other knowledge institutes.

Our vision

HPC-UGent offers a professional scientific computing environment that is stable, user-friendly, and serves the diverse purposes of researchers from Ghent University, industry and other research institutions.

We provide a structural training curriculum for new and advanced users, and provide supporting course material.

We present a supercomputing portfolio that is well known within Ghent University and beyond, and we establish ourselves in the international community via contributions to centralised solutions, such as EasyBuild.
