The Master's Degree in High Performance Computing, organized by the universities of A Coruña and Santiago de Compostela, together with the Galician Supercomputing Center (CESGA), specializes students in such an important topic today as High Performance Computing (HPC).
High Performance Computing (HPC) enables scientists and engineers to solve complex scientific, engineering, and even business problems, using applications that require high bandwidth, advanced networks, and very large computational or data analysis capabilities. The professionals who are trained in this specialization have the knowledge and skills needed by companies and institutions with R+D+i centers that want or need to incorporate emerging technologies. HPC is related to topics as fashionable as multicore processors (formerly specific to large computer equipment, but today present in PCs, tablets or mobile phones), cloud computing (cloud computing) or the so-called Big Data.
The Master's Degree in High Performance Computing has as its fundamental objective the training of professionals, technologists and researchers in the field of computer architecture and high performance computing. This affects academic, research and technology transfer aspects that will allow students to join R+D+i departments, technology centers or start doctoral studies in the field of high-performance computing.
Major multinational companies such as IBM, HP, Bull, Fujitsu, AMD, Amazon Web Services or Gompute collaborate in this master's degree, as well as the Professional College of Computer Engineering of Galicia.
