University of Maryland HPC assisted research in the popular media

Various newspapers and other media had several articles referring to the University of Maryland's HPC resources and the research performed on them, including:

Courses using UMD HPC resources

Education is the primary mission of the University, and experience with High Performance Computing is a necessary part of a balanced educational experience in many disciplines. As such, the Division of Information Technology makes some HPC cluster resources available for classes offered by the University upon the request of the instructors. If you are an instructor for a class which you believe might benefit from using some of the University's HPC resources, you can request the class gets access to some HPC resources.

Below is a list of some of the standard academic offerings which have used some of the University's HPC resources as part of the class:
