MSOE celebrated the grand opening of Dwight and Dian Diercks Computational Science Hall on Sept. 13, 2019. The 65,536-square-foot building features an NVIDIA GPU-powered supercomputer nicknamed "Rosie." Rosie is housed in a state-of-the-art datacenter in Diercks Hall and is powered by more than 100 of the most advanced NVIDIA GPUs.
Unique to MSOE, the supercomputer will be available to undergraduate students, offering them the ability to apply their learning in a hands-on environment to prepare for their careers.
The name of this number-crunching behemoth was inspired by the women who programmed one of the earliest computers – the Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer (ENIAC). This video explains the inspiration for the supercomputer's name and was shown at the grand opening event.
