What is High Performance Computing? High Performance Computing (HPC) is the use of powerful processors, networks and parallel supercomputers to tackle problems that are very computationally or data-intensive. What will I learn? This programme aims to provide you with in-demand skills and knowledge of the techniques and technologies underpinning parallelism and HPC. Skills and knowledge will be gained across a wide range of industries and academic disciplines. The flexible structure ensures you acquire core principles required before proceeding to your choice of more advanced topics. This allows you to take on the programme at your own pace. The curriculum has been designed specifically to maximise opportunities for students to take the programme flexibly, although inter-course pre-requisite criteria do provide some limitations. You can study:
- MSc - 3-6 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
- Postgraduate Diploma - 2-4 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
- Postgraduate Certificate- 1-2 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
- Postgraduate Professional Development - 2 Years (Part-time Intermittent Study)
