Master in High Performance Computing and Big Data Analytics


Program Description

Master in High Performance Computing and Big Data Analytics


The master’s program aims at providing students with the appropriate tools for further doctoral studies and professional activity.

Programme objectives

Acquisition of theoretical, applicative and practical knowledge in:

  • complex systems modelling based on mathematical concepts and methods, and on programming concepts and techniques.
  • programming and usage on/of computation systems, especially those of high performance, which are necessary for solving real life problems and for simulating complex problem solutions.
  • exploitation (data-analysis, knowledge-discovering) and visualization of „big data” for computation problems, statistical interpretations, decision processes, or for scientific instruments.
  • applicative scientific domains where high performance systems are used.
  • analysis and improvement of software processes.
  • professional modelling for team work as well as interdisciplinary approaches to research and development.
