Master in High Performance Computing

The Master in High Performance Computing (MHPC) is an innovative specialization program that prepares students for exciting careers in the fast-growing field of HPC. MHPC coursework is driven by challenging scientific and technical problems that require an HPC approach, the program is supported by SISSA and ICTP. Lectures are provided by SISSA and ICTP staff and highly recognized international experts. Both institutes have long histories and experience in developing and applying scientific and research computation models.

More Details

Students who successfully complete the program will be able to address problems requiring advanced computational techniques in multiple domains, and communicate HPC technological issues in all scientific and industrial environments. The title obtained at the end of the master is not equivalent to Master of Science (M.S.)
