The BUE has established a research dedicated computing facility that entails special features which are necessary for today’s research activities. The High Performance Computing Equipment comprises a central parallel computing server in addition to eight high-end workstations which are to form a distributed parallel computing cluster. These computers have special characteristics that are necessary for computer intensive calculations essential in most of today’s research projects. Such characteristics include parallel processing, large memory, Solaris operating system and Grid Engine. In addition, the BUE has acquired several software licenses for the most widely used packages that are required by researchers in all disciplines.
The BUE indentified the importance of providing ample library resources in order to drive the research activities of its academic staff. Library resources were classified into two main categories, i.e., physical resources and online resources. Physical resources mainly comprised books while online resources comprised both electronic books and online journal databases. Library Portal
This service is intended to save time for researchers who are looking for a specific journal or electronic book within our databases but do not know where to find it, so instead of opening each database and browse the journals/ books inside you can do that from one single place. E-Collections
Online databases consist of thousands of scientific electronic journals that you can rely on when you are doing your research. The following links will connect you to the relevant database, however, you need to select the appropriate link depending on being on campus or off campus. Engineering Databases
Subject Guides are a good place to get started looking for information. Each subject guide lists useful resources (websites, article databases, books,..) for a particular subject area.
