Course summary

Programme description

This programme aims to provide students with in-demand (for both a wide range of industries and academic disciplines) skills and knowledge of the techniques and technologies underpinning parallelism and High Performance Computing (HPC). HPC is the use of powerful processors, networks and parallel supercomputers to tackle problems that are very computationally or data-intensive.

The flexible structure ensures students acquire core principles required before proceeding to their choice of more advanced topics and allows students to take on the programme at their own pace. You can study to an MSc, Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Professional Development level.

Learning outcomes

The learning outcomes of the programme are to:

  • Equip students with an understanding of HPC architectures and technologies.
  • Equip students with expertise in advanced tools and techniques for HPC software development.
  • Enable students to apply this knowledge in order to exploit modern parallel and multicore computing systems in key scientific and commercial application areas.
  • Enable students to develop skills in problem-solving, project management, independent and critical thinking, team work, professionalism and communication.
  • Enable students to develop as HPC practitioners, able to apply current and emergent technologies in both industry and research.
  • Teach the leading-edge programming techniques required to exploit the power of the world’s largest parallel supercomputers.

Career opportunities

Graduates from EPCC’s on-campus MSc programmes are in high demand from a wide range of companies ranging from multinationals to SMEs both within the UK, Europe, and internationally as well as a strong demand from within academia both as researchers within HPC, computational science fields, data science, and professionally for HPC services and centres underpinning research.
