One of the World's Most Powerful University-based Supercomputing Center

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, in partnership with IBM and New York state, has created one of the world’s most powerful university-based supercomputing centers, and a top 50 supercomputing center of any kind in the world.

The Computational Center for Nanotechnology Innovations (CCNI), based on the Rensselaer campus and at its Rensselaer Technology Park in Troy, N.Y., is designed both to help continue the impressive advances in shrinking device dimensions seen by electronics manufacturers, and to extend this model to a wide array of industries that could benefit from nanotechnology.

The CCNI focuses on reducing the time and costs associated with designing and manufacturing nanoscale materials, devices, and systems. In addition to its focus on nanotechnology, the center supports research in fields where computational power can expand understanding.

This center is an important resource for companies of any size — from start-ups to established firms — to perform research that would be impossible without both the computing power and the expert researchers affiliated with the CCNI.
