About us

In scientific computing (aka supercomputing or high performance computing - HPC), computers are used to solve complex problems.

Our mission

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

HPC-UGent is part of the central ICT department of Ghent University, and is a strategic partner of the Flemish Supercomputer Center (VSC).

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.
