About BGSC

Technology as high performing as you are

Our students wanted more experience studying physical and chemical systems, so they proposed funding for a high-performance supercomputing cluster with graphical processing units (GPUs). We received funding in 2012 and purchased two GPU nodes, one head node, and eight computer nodes and software, which became the Blugold Supercomputing Cluster. With the support of UWEC learning and technology services, six academic departments now give their students the research experience of a lifetime.
