For the past eight years, CREIC has been enabling computational research across UCO's College of Mathematics and Science and beyond. CREIC is an interdisciplinary center, with researchers collaborating on topics that span many STEM disciplines. CREIC was initiated to address the computational needs of faculty and their students with a focus on providing access to resources such as high performance computing.
CREIC Director, Evan Lemley, along with CREIC member, Gang Qian, wrote a successful National Science Foundation grant to obtain UCO's first supercomputer, Buddy (named after UCO's mascot).
CREIC also houses Oklahoma's only computational science program: Professional Science Master's in Computational Science.
The detailed goals of CREIC were initially outlined in a proposal.
