NOTE: Every faculty group should have at least one project. This will include a subscription to the UB-HPC (academic) cluster. Faculty members may require additional projects depending on their roles at the university. Anyone teaching classes should create projects for each course taught (these projects can be reused from semester to semester). Also, anyone using the industry cluster for work outside their general research should create a separate project.
