To promote research and scholarship, the University has made high performance computing support part of its IT services. Every faculty and student at Marquette are eligible to use MUGrid and Père for their course or research projects without cost.
In order to get access to MUGrid, each faculty member must complete a Marquette Research Computing Account Request Form at the Marquette HPC web site. He or she is responsible for complying with Marquette's Acceptable Use Policies and receiving necessary training for using the system. Several self-paced training resources are available on both the MUGrid and Marquette HPC web site, and bootcamps are offered regularly throughout the year.
Students need the approval of a faculty member, typically their research advisor or instructor, who will be responsible for overseeing the training and activities of the student on MUGrid. The student then need to complete the same Marquette Research Computing Account Request Form at the Marquette HPC web site. The student should provide a faculty sponsor in the request form.
