ICTP and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) are pleased to announce that they are now accepting applications for the inaugural year of the Master in High Performance Computing (MHPC) programme, which will start in September 2014 in Trieste.
The MHPC is an innovative degree programme that prepares students for exciting careers in the fast-growing field of high performance computing (HPC). Set in the stimulating research environment of ICTP and SISSA, the programme will combine lectures with hands-on and applied projects to prepare future HPC specialists for academia and industry.
MHPC coursework will be driven by challenging scientific and technical problems that require an HPC approach. Lectures will be provided by ICTP and SISSA staff and highly recognized international experts. Both institutes have long histories and experience in developing and applying scientific and research computation models.
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.
Details about tuition fees, fellowships, admissions requirements and application instructions are available on the MHPC website.
Application deadline is Monday, 19 May 2014.
