The NDSU-CIIT Green Computing and Communications Laboratory (GCC Lab) is an initiative to bring together the faculty, staff, and students of the North Dakota State University and COMSATS Institute of Information Technology to conduct research on making computing and communications, energy-efficient.

The GCC Lab currently hosts 10 faculty members and over 35 research students. The laboratory is built with flexible lab spaces for better efficiency in handling both software and hardware solutions. Maintaining performance symmetry among the cores is one of the vital issues researchers.

NDSU and CIIT formally sign an agreement (on November 10, 2010) to make special arrangements (tuition discounts, living expenditures) for CIIT students  to pursue PhD degrees at NDSU. As a result of the agreement, we expect up to 30 PhD students to join the GCC Lab in the next 2-3 years. (NDSU Provost Dr. Schnell and CIIT Registrar Dr. Malik were signing the agreement on behalf of their institutions.) (Read the official news.)
