Lines of the Master •Parallel Computing •GRID Technologies •Distributed Systems and Highly Available Systems •Computational Sciences .

Objectives Training of researchers and independent professionals. with the ability to carry out research work and/or technology transfer work. with experience in the field defined by the master. • Training of professionals having their scope in industry • Training of researchers having their scope within the scientific community . and ability to supervise and guide other researchers and/or professionals. Parallel and Distributed Computing.

Professional Opportunities: Toy Industry • Example Project HIPERPLAST • • Funded by European Commission Objective: Develop a parallel simulator for the injection process of short-fiber reinforced plastic Designed to work on low-cost parallel platforms (cluster of PCs) Allows the manufacturer to reduce the number of necessary prototypes during the design. thus reducing cost and time • • .

MT.…) Designed to work on a Cluster of PCs with commodity software (Windows OS) Provides similar performance as a high cost equipment with an investment of 20% only .Professional Opportunities: Medical Applications and Bioinformatics • Example Project HIPERCIR • • • • Funded by European Commission Segmentation and 3D reconstruction of medical images (CAT. US.

while reducing constructive costs between 1015% .Professional Opportunities: Building Industry • Example Project HIPERBUILD • • • • 3D modelling. analysis and visualization of building structures Allows for realistic simulation of building as large and complex as desired Designed to work on supercomputers or clusters of PCs or workstations Can increase the throughput of the engineering company up to 50%.
