The School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh offers up to two Master’s scholarships in High Performance Computing (www.epcc.ed.ac.uk/msc) for the 2014-2015 academic session. Each scholarship covers Tuition Fees and Additional Programme Costs and is tenable for one academic year.
These scholarships are awarded competitively.
The MSc in HPC is taught by EPCC (www.epcc.ed.ac.uk). EPCC is a Research Institute within the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh. We are one of the leading supercomputing centres in Europe, managing an extensive collection of HPC systems including HECToR (www.hector.ac.uk) and ARCHER (www.archer.ac.uk), the UK’s National High Performance Supercomputers. ARCHER, a 72,000-processor Cray XC30 system, is the UK’s largest, fastest and most powerful supercomputer and is expected to provide nearly four times the scientific throughput of its predecessor HECToR.
Students taking the MSc learn the fundamental parallel programming techniques required to program these large machines, and have access to leading-edge HPC platforms and technologies such as ARCHER for their research projects.
All students, regardless of their nationality, who have been accepted for admission to the MSc in High Performance Computing before the scholarship deadline are eligible to be considered.
Applicants must have, or expect to obtain, a UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree or its equivalent from outside the UK.
In order to be considered for one of the Master?s Scholarships in High Performance Computing, please submit your application for the MSc in HPC programme by Thursday 1 May 2014.
