Course summary

What is High Performance Computing?

High Performance Computing (HPC) is the use of powerful processors, networks and parallel supercomputers to tackle problems that are very computationally or data-intensive.

What will I learn?

This PgProfDev programme aims to provide you with in-demand skills and knowledge of the techniques and technologies underpinning parallelism and HPC. Skills and knowledge will be gained across a wide range of industries and academic disciplines.

The flexible structure ensures you acquire core principles required before proceeding to your choice of more advanced topics. This allows you to take on the programme at your own pace.

Career opportunities

Graduates from EPCC’s on-campus MSc programmes are in high demand from a wide range of companies ranging from multinationals, to subject matter experts both within the UK, Europe, and internationally.

Graduates are also in strong demand in academia as researchers in HPC, computational science fields, data science, and professionally for HPC services and centres underpinning research.
