Course content

To help students begin careers in Scientific Computing, be it in University or industry, the Centre for Scientific Computing offers a taught masters course. Students completing this MSc will receive the core skills to help them undertake either postgraduate research or enter the growing industrial and financial HPC market.It is an exciting time for Scientific Computing.

With the rapid deployment of high performance computing (HPC) hardware in industry and academia the subject is emerging as the third pillar of scientific enquiry. It links theory and observations and pushes theory beyond the assumptions required for analytically tractable solutions. The rapid take up in academia is also now reflected in the core research in industry and financial sector.
