In this course we introduce the basics for using the Euler cluster for scientific computing. We will show you how to gain an access to the Euler cluster, how to efficiently transfer and locate your data to help optimize your computational I/O, how to configure your computing environment and use centrally installed applications by using Modules, and how to submit and monitor a job and retrieve your job output by using the batch system.


This course is designed for beginners and does not require any previous knowledge.

To follow the course, a participant needs

  • a valid ETH account
  • a local computer with SSH client


The content of the course is structured as follows:

  1. Accessing the cluster
  2. Storage and data transfer
  3. Modules and applications
  4. Using the batch system
