    Study perspectives

    Graduates from the Master in High Performance Computing can continue with a PhD in Computer Science and Computer Engineering at the University of Luxembourg.

    “Our Master relies on innovative curriculum and teaching paradigms, leading universities, top HPC experts, access to supercomputing centres and strong industry support. I am deeply convinced that in particular the new HPC/HPDA/AI specialisation will have a great impact on the development of HPC/HPDA/AI-based companies, R&D areas and the European economy as a whole.””
