Course content

The MSc in High Performance Computing with Data Science equips you with multidisciplinary skills and knowledge in both high performance computing (HPC) and data science.

Programme description

Data science is concerned with the manipulation, processing and analysis of data to extract knowledge. This area is undergoing a revolution in which HPC is a key driver.

HPC provides the power underpinning the management and analysis of big data; the increasingly large, complex and challenging data sets that are now generated across many areas of science and business.

The MSc in High Performance Computing with Data Science equips you with multidisciplinary skills and knowledge in both HPC and data science.

Programme structure

You will study at EPCC, the UK’s leading supercomputing centre, and will be taught by staff who have a wealth of expertise across all areas of high performance computing, parallel programming and analysis of big data.

The programme consists of a taught component and a dissertation component. Throughout your studies you will have access to a wide range of leading-edge HPC platforms and technologies.
