EUMaster4HPC , the HPC European Consortium Leading Education Activities, aims to develop a new and innovative European master's degree programme focusing on high-performance computing (HPC). Students trained through this programme should develop versatile and advanced skills that will enable them to take up a career in various areas where HPC plays a strong role

The project brings together major players in HPC education in Europe and mobilises them to unify existing programs into a common European curriculum. It leverages experience from various European countries and HPC communities to generate European added value beyond the potential of any single university.

During the project, the universities awarding degrees within EUMaster4HPC (which include the KTH Royal Institute of Technology) will engage in education of students in HPC-related topics and award them with dual and joint master's degrees.

EUMaster4HPC emphasises collaboration across Europe with innovative teaching paradigms including co-teaching and the cooperative development of new content relying on the best specialists in HPC education in Europe. Employers, researchers, HPC specialists, supercomputing centres, centres of excellence and technology providers will constitute a workforce towards this master in HPC pilot programme. This pilot will provide a base for further national and pan-European educational programmes in HPC all over Europe and our lessons learned and the material development will accelerate the uptake of HPC in academia and industry.

The creation of a European network of HPC specialists will catalyse transfers and mutual support between students, teachers and industrial experts. A particular focus on mobility of students and teachers will enable students to rapidly gain experience through internships and exposure to European supercomputing centres.
