High Performance and Scientific Computing
This course is suitable for graduates in a scientific or engineering discipline who would like to specialise in applications of high performance computing in a chosen scientific area. The course enables students to develop computational and scientific knowledge and skills in tandem with helping emphasise inter-dependence and develop a solid knowledge base of high performance computing tools and concepts with a flexibility in terms of techniques and applications.
A Bachelor's degree in a scientific or engineering discipline with a grade of 2.2 or above is required. Students must also be able to prove familiarity with a high level programming language such as Java, Python, C# etc., e.g. through the successful completion of a taught module that has been part of the curriculum or relevant industrial experience. Students will be automatically matched to the route corresponding to BSc routes. English language requirement IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or a Swansea University recognised equivalent.
Modules typically include: graphics processor programming; high performance computing in C/ C++; operating systems and architectures; software testing; programming in C/C++; partial differential equations; numerics of ODEs and PDEs; software engineering; data visualisation.
