KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 14 (Bernama) — A student team from the Department of Computer Science at National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) in Taiwan has recently won the championship at the World Supercomputer Student Cluster Competition (SCC) held in Dallas, USA.
According to a statement, this was the fifth championship won by an NTHU team at the two largest supercomputer competitions in recent years.
The SCC gives college students a chance to test their skills in three areas which are the integration of software and hardware, programme performance, and cross-disciplinary knowledge.
Since the competition lasts for 56 hours without interruption, it also poses a significant challenge to the participants’ stamina and ability to work under stress.
The areas tested in this year’s competition were material fracture analysis, fluid dynamics simulation, and earthquake dynamics, all of which require a strong knowledge of these various fields.
The NTHU team previously won the SCC in 2010 and 2011, and also won the Student Supercomputer Challenge in 2019 and 2021.
