The deadline is on 10 July 2020

Enrolments are now open for the seventh edition of the Master's Degree Course 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 Master 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 2020, 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.
