Four semesters. (120 ECTS)
High Performance Computing (HPC) allows scientists and engineers to solve complex science, engineering, and business problems using applications that require high bandwidth, enhanced networking, and very high computing capabilities. Professionals who have taken this specialization possess all of the knowledge and skills required by companies and institutions with R&D centers that want to incorporate emerging technologies. This specialization fulfills the requirements for admission to the doctoral degree in Computer Architecture.
The master’s degree is taught by highly qualified professors, including leading researchers from the BSC (Barcelona Supercomputing Center), and professors with past research experience at companies like Intel, IBM, HP, Compaq and Sun Microsystems.
The activities to obtain the SIRI credits can be done in any semester of the master's degree. Consult the detail of the seminars.

Candidates must provide proof of their English proficiency, with at least a B2 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (or equivalent).
Once you're inside the application form, you must choose the master Innovation and Research in Informatics. Once selected this master, you will be able to select the specialization High Performance Computing.
You may graduate from this master’s degree with a double diploma degree from the UPC and any of the following universities. This will involve starting your master’s degree at the UPC and completing it at the other university.
MIRI stands for Master in Innovation and Research in Informatics. This label identifies those programmes with a special focus on research and innovation. Graduates become the most knowledgeable and skilled professionals in their respective area. These programmes are highly specialized and they provide a two year immersion in the corresponding field.
The six MIRI programmes are:
