How Researchers Use Princeton Resources

Research computing at Princeton University engages academic departments and disciplines across the natural sciences, engineering, social sciences, and humanities.The Princeton Institute for Computational Science and Engineering (PICSciE) and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) work together to provide the computational and digital data infrastructure and support that meet the research needs and priorities of Princeton's faculty, researchers, and students. The resources and services we provide centrally include computational and visualization hardware, software, system administration, programming, and visualization support.
