EPCC offers two MSc degree programmes: The MSc in High Performance Computing and the MSc in High Performance Computing with Data Science. Both programmes offer flexibility with a rich choice of units and excellent job prospects on graduation.

2018/19 has seen the MSc in High Performance Computing/High Performance Computing with Data Science’s largest ever entry, with 36 students beginning the programmes last September, and it has been an extremely busy year for students and staff alike.

The PRACE Summer of HPC 2018 provides an opportunity for up to 23 applicants from across Europe to apply to one of the PRACE supercomputing centres to work on a PRACE-related piece of work for eight weeks over the summer. 

The projects are preceded by a training week, hosted this year by EPCC in Edinburgh alongside ARCHER and PRACE Advanced Training Centre courses. The training week is designed to build a community between the Summer of HPC participants and to provide the necessary skills for students to begin their projects. Flights and accommodation are provided by the programme with a stipend to cover living costs.
