National Science Foundation funds project to develop high-speed data network at TCNJ

The TCNJ School of Science and TCNJ Information Technology was recently award a grant from the National Science Foundation titled “CC* Networking Infrastructure: Building a Friction-free, High-speed Science Network and DMZ to Support Data-intensive Research and Education at The College of New Jersey.” This funded project will implement a new high-speed science network at TCNJ to support cutting-edge computational research and education, and specifically to create direct high-speed connections to the TCNJ’s High Performance Computing (HPC) cluster, ELSA (the Electronic Laboratory for Science and Analysis), which will provide students with greater access to research opportunities in laboratories and classrooms, and contribute to the preparation of a computationally literate workforce. Dr. Joseph Baker, a computational chemist in the TCNJ Chemistry Department, contributed to the writing of this grant, and his computational chemistry laboratory will be one of the laboratories directly connected to ELSA as a result of this funding.
