Welcome to the home of High Performance Computing (HPC) at the Faculdade de Engenharia of the Universidade do Porto. This site exists to provide documentation and information about the HPC facilities and resources available at FEUP to users and potential users of high performance computing.

HPC is a research tool that can be used to solve computational problems that would otherwise to intractable due to their size or long run times. It involves taking advantage of both hardware and software in order to solve these problems. To make the most of the infrastructure, our staff is available to help users at all levels of HPC expertise to solve these problems - although you will need to bring your own specialist knowledge to the table in order to do this successfully.
