Heterogeneous Computing for Undergraduates: A Module-Driven Approach


Authors: Apan Qasem (Texas State University), David Bunde (Knox College), and Philip Schielke (Concordia University Texas)

Abstract: To achieve aggressive performance and power goals, HPC systems are becoming increasingly heterogeneous. This represents an educational challenge since few current curricula include much about heterogeneous computing except possibly in upper-division electives. This poster presents a set of modules to integrate heterogeneous computing concepts in an undergraduate computer science curriculum. We discuss coverage of topics, the design philosophy and our experiences implementing the modules at different institutions. The modules are being developed as part of an NSF-funded initiative to enhance the Advanced Cyberinfrastructure workforce. The poster also discusses the synergistic activities undertaken in the broader project.
