We have seen increasing demand for data analytics skills for large-scale data, and in computation that can scale up. Our MSc programmes in HPC and HPC with Data Science address this demand.
The on-campus MSc programmes in HPC and HPC with Data Science are growing rapidly. With 70 students, the class of 2020 is nearly double the size of 2019’s class.

The class of 2019 was the eighteenth cohort of EPCC MSc students and the first to be based at the Bayes Centre home. Our new surroundings have been immensely beneficial to the student experience, with the student desk space quite literally on the doorstep of staff offices and plenty of space to breakout for group study. Despite 2018/19 being our largest MSc intake in terms of entrants to that point, it was an incredibly cohesive group.

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.
