Undergraduate Education

The Blue Waters project supports the Undergraduate Petascale Education Program, which promotes understanding and interest in petascale computing and its applications among undergraduate students and faculty through workshops for faculty, undergraduate internships, and curricular materials.

Blue Waters Undergraduate Internships

The goal of the Blue Waters Ungraduate Internship program is to engage undergraduate students in petascale computing research and development projects. Approximately 20 undergraduate research interns are selected each year. Each intern receives a stipend of  $5,000 and participates in a two-week intensive high-performance computing workshop. Some students also will receive travel support to attend the annual Blue Waters Symposium. For complete details see: https://bluewaters.ncsa.illinois.edu/internships. NOTE: 2015 internship applications are due by March 20

Curriculum modules

These curriculum modules have been developed to support the teaching and use of parallel and high-performance scientific computing in the undergraduate and graduate science classrooms.
