An important part of our mission in the Simulation Based Engineering Lab is to let other people learn about the potential of simulation, in particular, and Computational Science, in general. We believe strongly that there is a lot of merit in exposing to this emerging discipline groups of people that in their day-to-day life are very unlikely to get the chance to understand and see how computers are used in Science and Engineering. Belonging to a public education institution, we do this not only because we ought to, but because we truly believe that a career in Computational Science is an exciting and rewarding path to take at this time.

Below we list some of the outreach projects that have been undertaken by our lab:

ProCSI - “Promoting the Computational Science Initiative”

Workshop: “Teraflop Parallel Computing on a Budget: Applications of GPU Computing in Mechanical Engineering”
