Recent Alum Donated Video Card

Michael Moorman (MS '12), a recently alum of the MS in CS program, helped his beloved video card find a new life. As an avid programmer and gamer, Michael routinely upgraded his own computer at home. The card being replaced, NVIDIA GeForce GTX-470, is still an extremely high power computing node, capable of reaching 1088.6 GFLOPS (carrying out 1*10^12 computations in a second). Michael donated it to the department for use by students. Hood College is an NVIDIA Education Center, the first in the State of Maryland.

Michael Moorman published a peer reviewed journal paper on an optimization algorithm for Massive Parallel Computing when he was studying at Hood College.
