Welcome to the CCAST.
CCAST provides scientific computational resources to the NDSU research community and its partners to enable new discovery.
NDSU's CCAST was established in 2003 to provide access to secure, advanced scientific computation resources for the university's researchers and their private and public sector partners. This center also gives NDSU the ability to participate in its own program of advanced computation and networking research, allowing the school to assume an international role in the development of improved programming and networking methods.
CCAST and its research users have developed and continue to develop relationships with federal agencies, with the aim of providing information-based services such as data mining and mass data storage. Our federal partners include the General Services Administration and the National Science Foundation.
CCAST staff are available to assist with scientific computing issues, database set-up and database administration.
NDSU faculty members, staff, collaborators with NDSU researchers, and students sponsored by NDSU faculty and staff have authority to use the equipment.
