Providence University named first CUDA Teaching Center in Taiwan
Providence University in Taiwan has been named a CUDA Teaching Center by NVIDIA, the world leader in visual and high-performance computing.
CUDA is NVIDIA's parallel computing architecture that enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing units (GPUs). The CUDA Teaching Center program recognizes institutions that have integrated GPU computing techniques into their mainstream computer programming curriculum. Program benefits include the donation of teaching kits, software licenses and NVIDIAR CUDAR architecture-enabled GPUs for teaching lab computers, as well as academic discounts for additional hardware, if required.
As a CUDA Teaching Center, Providence University has the opportunity to keep pace with world renowned universities, including Purdue University, Michigan State University, University of Southern California, San Jose State University in the U.S., McMurdoLancaster University in Canada, University of Catania in Italy, University of Kassel in Germany, SudParis Telecom in France, among others, that have similar GPU computing educational resources.
The CUDA Teaching Center will be located in College of Computing and Informatics, providing an environment with up-to-date technologies to teachers and students for instruction, research and to promoting the CUDA parallel programming model. In combination with existing curriculum, it will cultivate students' theoretical and practical skills in parallel programming, as also to increase their competence and competitiveness in the high-tech job market.
More than 500 universities and institutions are now teaching parallel programming based on the NVIDIA CUDA parallel programming environment, empowering the tens-of-thousands of students graduating each year with the knowledge and expertise to leverage the immense parallel processing power of GPUs.
