The mission of the Texas A&M High Performance Research Computing (HPRC) group is to provide technical expertise and high-performance computing (HPC) hardware to the campus research community. The HPRC group functions as a unit within the Division of Research. The leadership of the group reports to the Vice President for Research (VPR) and the HPC Steering Committee (see below).

HPC Steering Committee

Current Membership


HPC became a campus reality in 1989 when the university decided that the infrastructure for scientific computation required a significant boost. The original staff consisted of three analysts, a manager, and a part-time director. The first HPC system purchased was a 2-cpu Cray YMP. For more details on the topic, click here.
