The SC Conference advances its mission to build a strong and diverse HPC student community at both the undergraduate and graduate levels by offering professional development opportunities, guidance from mentors, and engagement with the SC Program. By supporting and encouraging students, Students@SC helps facilitate their transition into the professional community.
Student Cluster Competition, Student Volunteers, and Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates submissions open mid-February 2018.
Student Cluster Competition
Educational institutions interested in having students put their high performance computing skills to the test on a global stage are invited to form teams of undergraduate or high school students and sign up for this high-energy event where they will build, operate, and tune powerful cluster computers in competition with young talent from around the world.

Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates
Undergraduate students interested in learning more about high performance computing can apply to the Experiencing HPC for Undergraduates program, which brings students from around the world to the SC Conference. This is a great way for students to be introduced to academic and industrial professionals, and to learn about job opportunities, internships, and graduate education in high performance computing.
