Center for Academic Computing (CAC) was established on 23th, Mar. 2010.
Currently CAC has 51 nodes with 204 cores to support the research of professors and students from the College of Applied Science, Kyung Hee University. CAC was established to meet the following needs:
The global trend of computational science in applied science
The demand to increase the number & quality of publication
Cost effectiveness of publishing a paper
The trend of interdisciplinary science
In the past, only large institutes could afford to have computational systems because they were composed with super computers which were too expensive. Now the development of PC hardware enables even a small institute to have their own computation cluster in an affordable budget. The CAC was established for following purpose:
