The Centre for Business Analytics and Performance (CBAP) has an ongoing outreach activity that includes work with Integrated Device Technologies on setting up an Open Compute High Performance Computing (HPC) Chapter.
On June 2, 2016 – Professors from Telfer School of Management and the Faculty of Engineering visited with IDT to discuss collaboration on the HPC chapter and a number of other possibilities to engage management and engineering students in project work.
According to the IDT team (Devashish Paul, a Telfer MBA grad and masters in applied science in electrical engineering from U of O, Steve Lamontagne, a current Telfer MBA student, and Mohammad Akhter) Ottawa is still a hotbed of telecom skills which can be leveraged to explore innovative ways of creating HPC capabilities.
