|Course Name:||Introduction to Parallel Programming|
|Offered Date:||Fall - 2017 | Other versions|
Modern GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) technology supports massively parallel computations, which complements the serial processing capabilities of CPU technology. This course teaches students how to read and write programs that use both CPU and GPU technology. Students learn to reorganize existing programs into serial code that runs on the CPU and parallel code that runs on the GPU. Students also study cases that have benefited from CPU+GPU programming and develop a CPU+GPU application for a prospective client.
