Clemson University provides a diverse and extensive computing infrastructure supported locally within the chemistry department and by the Office of Computer and Network Services (CNS) and the Clemson Computing and Information Technology (CCIT). Various laboratories in the department have high-speed SGI, Sun and Linux workstations as well as a 28-processor cluster for parallel computations. PC and Macintosh computers are available in all departmental research labs and in many computer labs across campus.
The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences has recently installed a 256-processor distributed Beowulf cluster that makes Clemson one of the top supercomputing sites in the world.
Clemson University is also a participant in the highspeed Internet 2 and partners with the Center for Advanced Engineering Fibers and Films which has a state-of-the-art virtual reality laboratory and recently received a $1.3 million grant from the Keck Foundation to create a virtual visualization and design lab.
