The University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PETRONAS, the national oil company of Malaysia.
UTP offers a wide range of engineering and technology programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate levels complemented with a strong focus on Research and Development. The programmes are designed with high industry relevance to provide a dynamic learning environment. High-Performance Computing (HPC) Service Center, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), is a service center that provides computing services for high-end engineering and the physical sciences.
The mission of the HPC Service Center is to develop, promote and facilitate the use of HPC environments in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) to address problems in the engineering and physical sciences fields.
The objectives are to:
- Encourage the use of cutting edge computational techniques in engineering research.
- Develop expertise and facilities for developing HPC-based solutions to engineering problems that could not otherwise be resolved.
- Work together with UTP's Mission-Oriented Research (MOR) in acquiring fund to ensure a continual upgrade of HPC-related facilities.
