GPU Center of Excellence Education Opportunities

According to Dr. David Kirk, NVIDIA chief scientist, a GPU Center of Excellence designation also rewards schools that integrate GPU technology in the classroom, which promotes parallel processing concepts and equips students for the future of computing. Dr. Wen-mei Hwu, professor of electrical & computer engineering at Illinois and the center's principal investigator, collaborated with Dr. Kirk to teach one of the nation's first courses for advanced students in massively parallel processing.
