Wake Forest University Selected as
NVIDIA CUDA Teaching Center

Wake Forest University has been named a CUDA Teaching Center by NVIDIA Corporation. Dr. Sam Cho, assistant professor of the Physics and Computer Science Departments, will coordinate the Teaching Center activities, which include teaching, research, and training.

CUDA is NVIDIA's parallel computing architecture that enables dramatic increases in computing performance by harnessing the power of the graphics processing unit (GPU). CUDA Teaching Centers have integrated GPU computing techniques into their mainstream computer programming curriculum, and are dedicated to training the next wave of parallel programmers to address today's most challenging computing issues and drive the next wave of scientific discovery.

As part of the Teaching Center program, Dr. Sam Cho will teach a brand new course: Special Topics: GPU Programming (CSC 391/691, cross-listed as PHY 391/691) based on the CUDA architecture in Fall 2011. The department received GPU cards as an unrestricted gift to help upgrade a teaching lab.
