IIT Palakkad | Nodal Centre of NSM

Tue, 13th Oct, 2020 - 12:00 am


IIT Palakkad is now a NSM ( National Supercomputing Mission) Nodal Centre for Training in HPC and AI. We signed the MoU with CDAC to this effect on 12th October 2020 in the (virtual) presence of Hon'ble MoS, Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), Shri Sanjay Dhotre.  As a NSM Nodal Centre, we are tasked with training people around the region (faculty, researchers, industry persons, and students) to use HPC and AI based technologies and techniques to solve the challenges they are excited about. As a first step in this direction, we are partnering with our Sister Nodal Centres and C-DAC to offer a 13-week online course on Basics of HPC.
