Enrollments are now open for the eleventh 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 on September 9th, 2024 - 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.

SISSA will cover the cost of MHPC to currently unemployed doctoral students and former students (for a maximum of 6 exemptions) who received their doctorate no more than 12 months before the start date of classes. Other research institutes as well as private companies and industries may offer scholarships to cover the fee of the master and/or partial/full living expenses. Other universities are invited to send their PhD students to attend MHPC program from September to May. In that case, they are responsible for covering the MHPC fee.
ICTP offers every year a variable number of scholarships for applicants from developing countries, covering the MHPC fees as well as the cost of living expenses. The deadline for the applications for these scholarships is much earlier than the deadline for the application to MHPC itself, due to time restrictions in the VISA request procedures (deadline: April, 15th).
