New Delhi, Sep 19: Mahindra Ecole Centrale, an international engineering college based at Hyderabad, launched its Supercomputer Lab.

MEC has a strong research focus and several projects on Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning are already underway at the campus. To address the requirements for faster computing performance and providing a robust platform for deep learning and analytics and multi-disciplinary engineering simulations, the MEC Supercomputer lab was created at the campus.

The lab supports high intensity computations both for Artificial Intelligence applications and for complex simulations in physical sciences and engineering covering different aspects of fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, electromagnetics, integrated and optimized engineering design, molecular physics and related fields, according to a statement here on Thursday.

''To be a success in today’s rapidly evolving technological scenario, it is imperative that we expose our students with the latest technological advancements and get them to work on the best of products available globally.

The MEC Supercomputer Lab comprises of the DGX-1 supercomputer platform that includes a complex stack of components and software including AI Deep Learning frameworks, libraries and drivers. Our students will be trained on this platform that forms the base for most globally recognized initiatives,'' said Dr Yajulu Medury, Director, Mahindra Ecole Centrale.

A Dassault-Systemes based 3D-Experience package is also being installed in this lab. This package is an overlay on a suite of software that includes CATIA, DELPHI and other related modules, and facilitates Augmented Reality – Virtual Reality based immersive experience.

A set of 30 Workstations coupled with a Server are being installed and linked to the other platforms of this laboratory for facilitation of the complete 3D-Experience package. This will enable the attainment of a 3D-Experience Centre of Excellence at this lab.

MEC College of engineering is an international technology school, that marks the foray of the USD 20.7 billion Mahindra Group into the higher education sector. (UNI)
