About the Center

The Center for Computationally Assisted Science and Technology (CCAST) is a research unit funded by the U.S. Department of Energy within the Office of the Vice President for Research, Creative Activities and Technology Transfer at North Dakota State University. The mission of CCAST is (1) to support NDSU research, (2) to spur technology-based economic development in the state of North Dakota using computational methods in areas of national and state priority including energy, transportation, precision agriculture, and biomedicine, (3) to support education and outreach activities to drive advanced computing into the mainstream, and (4) to develop a specialized high-end computing workforce in order to help preserve our nation’s superiority in computational science.

We believe that computation – the third pillar, alongside theory and experimentation, of today’s research and education enterprise – will progress to a leadership role in the near future. Consequently, our long-term vision for this Center is that it be the foremost hub in the Upper Midwest for those scientific and engineering endeavors which cannot rely on theory and experimentation alone.
