A new EU Master's programme in high performance computing (HPC) is starting soon! The next deadline to apply is 28 February 2023.
Developed by the HPC European Consortium Leading Education Activities (EUMaster4HPC) and funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union, the new programme is now open for applications.
Why this Master's?
EUMaster4HPC emphasises collaboration across Europe with innovative teaching paradigms including co-teaching and the cooperative development of new content relying on the best specialists in HPC education in Europe.
The innovative programme includes a new forward-looking curriculum, study plans, materials and methodologies designed by the EUMaster4HPC consortium, comprising of leading EU universities: the University of Luxembourg, Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU), Sofia University 'St Kliment Ohridski', UPC: Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Politecnico di Milano, Sorbonne University, Università della Svizzera italiana, KTH Royal Institute of Technology. Tens of other universities from all around Europe are also taking part in the project.
The EUMaster4HPC will provide scholarships to students. Only applicants coming from EuroHPC member states are eligible for these scholarships funded by the European Union. Citizens of a Non-EU/Non-EuroHPC member country may be eligible for other scholarships, grants and financial aid.
Employers, researchers, HPC specialists, supercomputing centres, CoEs and technology providers will also support the implementation of this programme, which will provide the base for further national and pan-European educational programmes in HPC all over Europe.
What will you learn?
Uniquely European, the programme will focus on strengthening the European high performance ecosystem and respond to the increasing need for advanced digital skills in this area. With high performance computing gaining more and more buzz, it has the potential to dramatically accelerate the digital transformation and the sustainability of key economic (and energy) sectors. Graduates will become skilled HPC/HPDA/AI professionals with an understanding of the world-class HPC ecosystem and its applications in various scientific and industrial domains.
A particular focus on mobility of students and teachers will enable students to rapidly gain experience through internships and exposure to European supercomputing centres.
