The Center for Research Computing (CRC) offers a variety of computational outreach opportunities for high school students, undergraduates, and the general public. Key opportunities available through the CRC include:

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)

The CRC is an ideal setting for undergraduate students to become familiar with interdisciplinary computational research. Within the summer REU program, students are emersed within research groups working across a diverse range of computational problems.

Summer Scholars

The University's Summer Scholar program includes a Research Computing track in which participants spend two weeks learning firsthand about high performance computing, 3D visualizations, computer animation and visual effects, as well as mobile device apps. 

Data & Software Carpentry

The CRC participates in data and software carpentry training activities, including class coordination and certified instruction. Those interested in helping with a future class as a lead participant or instructor are encouraged to contact CRCsupport@nd.edu.

Django Girls

In partnership with Django Girls, the CRC recently hosted a a free one-day computer programming workshop for women with tools, resources, and support to create a website using HTML, CSS, Python, and Django.


The Rapid Exposure to Advanced Computational Training (REACT) program is a short-term initiative to support graduate students to receive the latest training in computational tools and techniques in their field. REACT will provide up to $1,500 to cover student tuition and registration to participate in nationally-recognized workshops that provide the latest training in computational approaches.
