Master in High Performance Computing 2022-2023: applications are open!

23 May 2022
La scadenza per le iscrizioni è il 12 luglio 2022

Enrollments are now open for the ninth edition of the specialization course “Master in High Performance Computing” (MHPC) co-organized by the Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA) and the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP).

MHPC is an innovative advanced training program with the aim of training a new class of professionals able to exploit and manage the powerful, complex and modern technologies underlying HPC.

Students who will complete this 12-months-course will have a solid background in scientific approaches to advanced computing, algorithms, numerical simulation techniques used in technical-scientific environments, the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and at the same time a clear understanding of the functionality of cutting-edge hardware architectures in HPC combined with the latest developments in software engineering techniques.

MHPC courses, which will start in September 2022, are based on scientific and technical problems that require an HPC-based approach for their resolution. Lessons are held by SISSA and ICTP staff and internationally recognized experts in the field. Both institutes have a long history and experience in the development and application of advanced scientific computing models.

The presence of partners reflects the growing interest of companies and research organizations in finding trained professionals in the sector.

In addition to the possibility of receiving support from external entities/companies and SISSA's support reserved for doctoral students and alumni who received their doctorate no more than 12 months prior to the start date of lectures and are currently unemployed , this year the ARDiS (Agenzia Regionale per il Diritto allo Studio della regione Friuli Venezia Giulia) has also made funds available for the abatement of tuition and attendance costs. It is possible to apply, if the eligibility criteria are met, at the same time as submitting the standard application.
