To access the GPU nodes, you can submit to the GPU queue in a PBS script:

module load shared
module load torque/6.0.2
qsub [...] -q gpu 

You can open an interactive shell onto a gpu node with the following:

qsub -I -q gpu

If you want to use CUDA to take advantage of GPU acceleration, you will need to load the modules, then compile it with NVCC

module load cuda80/toolkit/8.0.44

For a sample CUDA program, see:
