Nanyang Technological University becomes Southeast Asia’s first CUDA Teaching Center

CUDA Teaching CenterNVIDIA has appointed Nanyang Technological University as the first Southeast Asia CUDA Teaching Center (CTC).

The CUDA Teaching Center Program is designed to support and encourage teaching establishments to include GPU Computing using CUDA C/C++ as part of their course offerings.

Under the program, NVIDIA will donate CUDA enabled GPUs to be installed in teaching lab computers at NTU’s School of Computer Engineering. Students and other members of the university community will have direct access to CUDA enabled systems for hands-on experience of CUDA C/C++ development, debugging and experimentation.

“NVIDIA strongly believes in investing in and empowering the next generation by supporting teaching, research and advanced education. We are delighted to bring in NTU under our CUDA Teaching Center Program as this university is renowned for its high quality tertiary education and research program,” said Dr Simon See, Chief Solution Architect and Director for Solution Architect at NVIDIA.

Singapore-based NTU is a research-intensive university with globally acknowledged strengths in science and engineering. It has roots that go back to 1955 when Nanyang University was set up. Today, NTU has four colleges with 12 schools, and four autonomous entities, the National Institute of Education, S Rajaratnam School of International Studies, Earth Observatory of Singapore, and Singapore Centre on Environmental Life Sciences Engineering.

NTU provides a high quality global education to more than 33,500 undergraduate and postgraduate students. The student body includes top scholars and international olympiad medallists from the region and beyond.

CUDA is taught as part of the curriculum in both the undergraduate and graduate courses conducted at NTU’s School of Computer Engineering. The university also conducts three-day hands-on training courses outside the curriculum.
