The “Engineering Mathematics and Computing Lab” (EMCL), directed by Prof. Dr. Vincent Heuveline, is a center dedicated to interdisciplinary research activities with focus on technology transfer in the domains of scientific computing, numerical optimization, high-performance computing, cloud computing and related topics. In cooperation with institutes of the KIT and industrial partners, the EMCL currently works on topics in the areas of

  • Energy Research
  • Meteorology and Environmental Sciences
  • Medical Engineering and Biotechnology

These topics are mapped in the structure of the EMCL by means of thematic “Computing Labs” (CLs). The topic-driven Computing Lab are complemented by cross-sectional Computing Lab dedicated to

  • Hardware-aware Numerics
  • Scientific Visualization
  • Cloud Computing
  • IT Management and Infrastructure

Within the Computing Lab each project is usually an interdisciplinary collaboration that brings together the expertise of at least two research institutes or a research institute and an industrial partner, with the aim of solving problems of practical relevance.
Additionally, the “Incubator Group” of the EMCL experiments with ideas and products which are in the early stages of development. It gives excellent students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the latest technologies, and prepares a new generation of best trained and skilled scientists.
