Oberlin Center for Technologically Enhanced Teaching

Supercomputer (Science Center)



Research is a very important activity in that it promotes knowledge creation within a discipline and also provides a very authentic learning experience for the students. For these reasons we are provide some support for maintaining the research environment and helping to move it forward. As such we are involved in:

      Managing access to high-end software including:

      • Guassian on our 64-node cluster
      • Qualtrics as a high-end survey tool
      • Research level licenses for MatLab
      • Site-wide licenses for Mathematica
      • NOVA
    • Maintaining the usability of
      • 64 individual desktops located in various labs across the sciences
      • a small specialized  Geology lab.
      • a large 64 node cluster of computers
      • Consulting with individual departments and faculty on the purchase of relevant equipment


In most cases OCTET will be able to help you or to direct you to where you can find some help. Feel free to call or email us.
