This program offers an exciting opportunity
What makes this program so exciting for
Associated with the department is Acadia’s Centre for Mathematical Modelling and Computation (ACMMaC). The focus of ACMMaC is to apply mathematical and statistical models to problems in other fields, industry and the community. Graduate students in our program will have access to ACMMaC resources have the opportunity to become active participants in high-performance computing research.
A HPC cluster and several connected servers support computing needs within the department and in related departments across campus. Acadia is also a member of the ACEnet HPC consortium.
