MSc
Our programmes in High Performance Computing, and High Performance Computing with Data Science are available both on-campus (full-time and part-time) and online (part-time intermittent). The course content is designed to provide a strong foundation in HPC principles and best practices. Our students have access to Tier-1 and Tier-2 systems as well as novel architectures managed by EPCC. Further MSc dissertation projects can be undertaken in collaboration with industrial partners providing students with an excellent opportunity to test their skills on real world problems.

ARCHER2
EPCC provides training for users of the ARCHER2 service. Whilst these courses focus primarily on the ARCHER2 system, they also include courses of wider interest, including courses on MPI and OpenMP. Many course videos and course materials are available, with slightly older training materials developed for the original ARCHER service available too.

Software Sustainability Institute
EPCC is actively involved with the UK’s Software Sustainability Institute (SSI), through which we offer training courses in Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry which are designed to introduce researchers in various fields to Software Engineering and Data Science.

European collaborative projects
EPCC collaborates with multiple partners throughout Europe in HPC infrastructure projects such as PRACE and Centres of Excellence like BioExcel and CompBioMed. Through these projects we deliver courses and collaborate in the development of courses and training materials.
• PRACE Training (High Performance Computing): https://prace-ri.eu
• BioExcel Training (Computational Biomolecular research): https://bioexcel.eu/services/training/
• CompBioMed Training (Computational Biomedicine): https://www.compbiomed.eu/training-3/

Supercomputing MOOC
In collaboration with partners from PRACE, EPCC has developed a 5-week Supercomputing MOOC (a free, open, online course) in Supercomputing. The course is designed for anyone interested in leading-edge computing technology, supercomputers or the role that computer simulation takes in modern science and engineering.
