Scientific Computing Center
The Scientific Computing Center (SCC) provides support for the computing and networking needs of the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences, including the school’s academic departments on campus and flight operations at the Grand Forks International Airport.
The 6,400-square-foot machine room on the first floor of Clifford Hall houses servers and other computer equipment worth millions of dollars. The facility is outfitted with filtered, redundant power systems, temperature and humidity control, anti-static carpet, and raised flooring for cable distribution. Extensive electronic and physical security measures are in place to protect these resources.
Systems and network teams work diligently at SCC to provide server administration, network printing, e-mail, and file backup services. They are also responsible for the entire JDOSAS network infrastructure, from planning and implementation to troubleshooting and repair.
Our technical services team operates a Help Desk and provides hardware and software support for UND Aerospace faculty, staff, and students.
Aerospace Network, a support division within the Odegard School, is a leader in the use of technology to enhance teaching and learning. Aerospace Network has successfully developed a variety of computer-based instruction, from an intelligent tutoring environment for flight training to a distance learning program. State-of-the art video production studios and a computer-interactive classroom with satellite uplink allow transmission of classes, conferences, and training materials to schools and industry sites across the U.S. We also collaborate with the government and private sector in specific challenges they bring to us.
