The skills you will learn are applicable both to academic computational science and to a wide variety of careers in science, engineering, industry and commercial software development. 

As these online courses are new we do not have information on subsequent employment areas for students. However, the content of the courses is informed based on the introductory material from our MSc in HPC programmes

Our MSc graduates are employed across a range of commercial areas, for example software development, petroleum engineering, finance and HPC support. Others have gone on to PhD research in fields that use HPC technologies, including astrophysics, biology, chemistry, geosciences, informatics and material science.

For more information see the MSc's Alumni Profiles.
