MSc in High Performance Computing
Training the next generation of HPC experts
The MSc in High Performance Computing (HPC) is a one-year postgraduate masters programme taught by EPCC at the University of Edinburgh.
HPC is the use of powerful processors, networks and parallel supercomputers to tackle problems that are very compute or data-intensive. The same HPC techniques can be used to program the world’s largest supercomputer containing hundreds of thousands of processors, or to exploit the full potential of a multi-core laptop. This well-established MSc provides an excellent grounding in HPC technologies and their practical application. It will appeal if you have a keen interest in programming and would like to learn about HPC and parallel programming.
The School of Physics & Astronomy offers up to two Master’s scholarsh ips in High Performance Computing for each academic session. Each scholarship covers tuition fees and is tenable for one academic year.
The MSc in HPC provides a doorway to an exceptional variety of careers in research and industry.
