This affects the academic, research and technology transfer training that will allow students to join centers or departments of innovation, research and development, technology parks, industrial parks, high technology centers, and / or start the course. doctoral thesis in the area of high-performance computing. Likewise, social and environmental values related to computing are promoted, as well as a set of transversal competences aimed at professional development, such as the ability to work in a team, to lead work groups, to oral and written communication and, particularly, to ability to continue learning throughout the professional career.
Basic skillsPossess and understand knowledge that provides a basis or opportunity to be original in the development and / or application of ideas, often in a research context
That the students know how to apply the acquired knowledge and their problem-solving capacity in new or little-known environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their area of study
That students are able to integrate knowledge and face the complexity of formulating judgments from information that, being incomplete or limited, includes reflections on the social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments.
That students know how to communicate their conclusions and the latest knowledge and reasons that support them to specialized and non-specialized audiences in a clear and unambiguous way.
That students have the learning skills that allow them to continue studying in a way that will be largely self-directed or autonomous.CurriculumSpecialties or itineraries:

Credit transfer and recognition:
Recognition of credits: consists of the acceptance by a university of the credits that were obtained in an official education, in the same or in another university, and that are computed in other different teachings for the purposes of obtaining an official degree.
Transfer of credits: implies that in the official academic documents accrediting the successive teachings for each student, the totality of the credits obtained in official teachings taken previously, in the same or in another university, that have not led to the obtaining of an official title.SaidasIn the academic field, the program seeks a higher specialization that allows access to a new level of knowledge, once an access qualification is obtained from the branch of engineering or experimental sciences.
In the scientific field, graduates who complete this master's degree will be trained to work in multidisciplinary research centers or teams, as they will be able to apply supercomputing techniques in technological and industrial environments to improve quality and productivity, and will know and They will know how to use the tools provided by a supercomputer to solve the technical and scientific problems of their specialty. They may also continue research training and do a doctoral thesis where appropriate.
