SAN JOSE, Calif., July 23, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A recent document from Intel describes the latest collaboration in Computer Science at California State University Chico, which centers on parallel programming. The case study showcases Intel's contributions to the development of the next generation of computer scientists.
Dr. Judy Challinger, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Chico State has instituted the use of the Intel Manycore Testing Lab (MTL), a resource designed by Intel to support parallelism within the curriculum, in a required senior-level course in Numerical Methods and Parallel Programming. This resource provides students with real-world experience in hands-on, Manycore design and development, testing and debugging parallel software, parallel software scalability studies, and familiarity with emerging systems architecture.
The case study elaborates on how the MTL allows students to work with larger, more complex systems and to assess scalability in terms of efficiency in an actual Manycore environment, rather than a simulated or simplified system. Intel values and contributes to this type of approach because this type of exposure produces exemplary, career-ready programmers.
"Working with the Intel MTL is huge boost for programming students," says Dr. Judy Challinger, "they feel confident in their own knowledge of current and elaborate parallel processing; it makes them better prepared for what they will encounter in the field."
