About High Performance Computing Engineering at Politecnico di Milano

High Performance Computing (HPC) Engineering is a highly multidisciplinary programme, which aims at training engineers with a solid preparation in information technologies and computer architectures for supercomputing, in quantum computing and in the mathematical-statistical modelling of complex problems.

HPC applications can be found in nearly every industry handling most data-intensive workloads, thanks to powerful simulation and to the parallelization of the computational load on high-performance hardware that allows to strongly accelerate the analysis of large amounts of data, as well as the execution of increasingly complex and sophisticated artificial intelligence algorithms with unmatched speed, precision, and insight.

The main objective of the Study Course is to train graduates able to design, manage and use HPC systems to solve complex problems in different application domains, based on

  • advanced programming techniques and parallel algorithms
  • mathematical-statistical modelling and advanced numerical simulations
  • development of algorithms in the emerging domain of quantum computing

What students think about Politecnico di Milano

    Timothy, MSc in Integrated Product Design

    Testimonial from Timothy, MSc in Integrated Product Design, student at Politecnico di Milano

    Timothy is from Philadelphia and he is a Design graduate at Politecnico di Milano.

    Thanks to the university's well-equipped laboratories, he was able to develop his own creative ideas. He also had the opportunity to take part in Alta Scuola Politecnica and to work with other students in multidisciplinary teams on real-life projects.

    Follow his advice and be prepared for the experience of a lifetime!

    Sebastian, MSc in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering

    Testimonial from Sebastian, MSc in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering, student at Politecnico di Milano

    Sebastian, from Bogotá, chose Politecnico di Milano for its high-quality teaching and fell in love with Milan's multicultural atmosphere.

    While in Italy, he grew fond of running and participated in the Polimi Run, a competition which takes place twice a year.

    After graduating in Environmental and Land Planning Engineering, he went on to work for an Environmental Engineering company in Milan.

    Rogerio and Yiwei

    Testimonial from Rogerio and Yiwei, student at Politecnico di Milano

    Rogerio, from Brazil, and Yiwei, from China, met each other thanks to Politecnico di Milano Buddy project.

    The Buddy project matches new international students with current students of the university according to the programme and the interests of the two.

    A Buddy is a current student who, on a voluntary basis, will help one international student by getting in contact before arrival, answering questions, giving useful tips, introducing student life at the university and in the city for the first three months after arrival.

    Listen to some of Polimi buddies’ experience here and click here to know more about the Buddy program.
