FAS Science Research Software Core


The FAS Science Research Software Core was implemented by the Provost in recognition of the increasing demand for cutting edge software for use in analytical and experimental research, design and analysis. Such software can streamline research and enhance productivity in the lab, but can also be expensive to purchase and maintain. The mission of the SRSC is to provide investigators with affordable access to widely used and specialized software for applications common to the physical sciences and engineering.  In addition, the Core assists investigators in taking full advantage of this software, and employs a full time specialist to accomplish this important goal.  The software supported by the Core  is specific to the fields of Physics, Applied Physics, Chemistry, Computer Science, Geology & Geophysics and Engineering.   The software is available to all faculty, postdoctoral students, and graduate students within the FAS to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration.
