Singapore's Nanyang Technological University and China's Tsinghua University finished 1-2 in the 11th annual highly competitive Student Cluster Competition (SCC) at the Super Computer Conference (SC17) this week in Denver in the U.S. state of Colorado.

SCC was introduced in 2007 to expose undergraduate and high school students to high performance computing.

Over the past few months, six-person student teams designed and built small clusters with hardware and software vendor partners, learned designated scientific applications, and applied optimization techniques for their chosen architectures.

In the final days, students competed in a non-stop, 48-hour "mystery" challenge at the SC17 conference - to complete a real-world scientific work challenge.

A total of 16 teams competed in the 2017 competition, hailing from China, Germany, Poland, Singapore, the United States and China's Taiwan province.

The event is considered the penultimate student supercomputer competition in the world.
Tsinghua narrowly missed winning its third straight international computer competition of 2017 - edged out by a Singapore team comprised of all Mainland Chinese students

good that we have FTs to enable Singapore to punch above its weight ....

kudos to the foresight of our population planners .... 8)
