About Research Computing (RC)


ITS’ RC team works to identify research needs across Mines and to provide research computing and data resources, services and infrastructure to advance research and achieve our Mines @150 vision. RC will assist faculty by identifying information technology solutions and facilitating their research in areas such as: high-performance computing, evaluation of cloud vs. on-premise computing, storage and transfer of research data, project management with respect to IT solutions, etc. By providing consultation services and by acting as a liaison between faculty and ITS groups, RC is able to efficiently provide customized solutions to fit research needs.
