Call for Applications

The Master in High Performance Computing (MHPC) programme, coordinated by ICTP and the International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA), is now accepting applications for the 2023-2024 academic year.

As in prior years, ICTP is providing scholarships for applicants from developing countries. The deadline for such candidates is 30 April 2023.

Applicants should use the MHPC online application form; instructions are here.

The MHPC is an innovative degree programme that prepares students for exciting careers in the fast-growing field of high performance computing (HPC). Set in the stimulating research environment of ICTP and SISSA, the programme combines lectures with hands-on and applied projects to prepare future HPC specialists for academia and industry.

MHPC coursework is driven by challenging scientific and technical problems that require an HPC approach. Lectures are provided by ICTP and SISSA staff and highly recognised international experts. Both institutes have long histories and experience in developing and applying scientific and research computation models.

Students who successfully complete the program will be able to address problems requiring advanced computational techniques in multiple domains, and communicate HPC technological issues in all scientific and industrial environments.

The 2023-2024 academic year marks the 10th anniversary of the MHPC programme, during which 19 ICTP-supported students from 13 countries have graduated. In a recent survey, 63 percent of graduates have found employment in academia and 37 percent in industry.
