- Three miles from the main campus, Princeton’s high-performance computers hum undisturbed, cranking out projections of what happens when a neutron star encounters a black hole — things don’t go well for the neutron star — working out how trees know when it is safe to put out their spring leaves, and designing drug candidates for treating inflammatory diseases.
- A new graduate certificate program in Computational and Information Science is being offered through the Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering, with the aim of recognizing achievements of students who have undertaken comprehensive training in numerical analysis, software engineering, hardware and programming practices, and statistics and data modeling, both through formal course work and through research in their subject area.
Welcome to Research Computing at Princeton
Research computing at Princeton University engages academic departments and disciplines across the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, and humanities. The Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE) and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) work together to provide the computational and digital data infrastructure and support that meet the research needs and priorities of Princeton's faculty, researchers, and students. The resources and services we provide centrally include computational and visualization hardware, software, system administration, programming, and visualization support.
