Congratulations to the NSF/TCPP Fall 2011 Early Adopters!

Congratulations to the 39 professors across 18 universities who are being inducted into the Fall 2011 Early Adopter program. This program enables select university professors around the world to revamp undergraduate Computer Science and Engineering curricula to better prepare software development students to take advantage of tomorrow’s multi- and many-core technology. Students will future-proof their skills by learning how to write parallel software for multi-core processors. The NSF/TCPP program is supported by the Intel Academic Community and NSF. For additional information on the program and upcoming Early Adopter opportunities, please visit the NSF/TCPP Curriculum Initiative on Parallel and Distributed Computing home page.
