The MIHPS MSc. is joint degree of Université de Versailles Saint-‐ Quentin-‐en-‐Yvelines, Ecole Centrale de Paris, Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan and UniverSud PRES.
The training is part of a close partnership with CEA DAM and the Consortium [email protected]
(http://www.teratec.eu) CEA is a French government-funded technological research organization (French Atomic Energy Commission). [email protected]
is an association which brings together more than sixty companies and research laboratories and was brought into being on the initiative of the CEA in order to constitute a European pole of competence in high performance digital simulation. It was entrusted with the objectives of federating the whole range of industrial and academic players, systems suppliers and users, providing access to the most powerful systems currently available, promoting and increasing the attractiveness and the appeal of this sector by fostering economic development.

All major industrial and research sectors use high performance computing and simulation tools. High performance computing is also becoming an important issue for company competitiveness allowing them to reduce time and cost of their product design. This master is the first Master of Science in France dedicated to train managers specialized in this vital area. By using the tools and techniques for high performance computing and simulation, students
developments determined by the increasing importance of
Master of Science in Informatics, High Performance Computing and Simulation
simulation tools and the continuous augmentation of the power of computing systems.

Master 2 MIHP
MIHPS is a Master of Science devoted to the training of top scientists
the use of numerical simulation industry and research
A major feature of this master is to give future graduates a multidisciplinary skill, an expertise of high performance computing and parallel computing and an expertise of modelling / simulation techniques.
Master organization The MIHPS is a full-‐time four semesters Master degree. To apply to the MIHPS MSc., you need to be 1. graduate at the level L in the European LMD system in computer science, engineering, mathematics or physic 2. graduate with any equivalent degree as bachelor. The first two semesters of the Master provide skills and knowledge necessary for advanced study in computer science, high performance computing and simulation. Two specializations are offered in second year of the master, each one has two orientations: vocational or research.
