About the MHPC:

The Master in High Performance Computing (MHPC) is an innovative degree program that prepares students for exciting careers in the fast-growing field of HPC. MHPC is a high-level degree program (Level 7 EU Qualifications Framework) and set in the stimulating research environment of its co-organizing institutions, SISSA and ICTP, in the city of Trieste (Italy).

MHPC is intended for people who have a strong interest in IT and want to develop their careers through new technologies. The program combines lectures with hands-on and applied projects to prepare future HPC specialists who will have a solid background in scientific computing approaches, algorithms, and modeling. Students who complete the course will be able to address problems requiring advanced computational techniques both in scientific and industrial fields. An HPC graduate has unique chances to find the right job in the high technology market or academic scene.

Master students will benefit from state-of-the-art, large-scale HPC infrastructures installed at SISSA/ICTP campus. The courses are delivered by an international faculty of renowned experts in HPC, both from academia and companies. HPC vendors, IDVs and local companies are involved in the financing of fellowships and in providing industry-based HPC problems for final thesis.

The master lasts 12 months and is founded on three pillars:

- Advanced and parallel programming, software engineering, numerical analysis, data analytics, computing hardware, and cluster administration.
- Fundamental algorithms and strategies common to many scientific HPC applications.
- Student-developed, practical HPC projects created in close cooperation with leading scientific groups and in a stimulating industrial environment.

For the fourth edition of the master we plan to have between 10 to 15 students.
