Depending on the choice of specialization Computational Sciences Master Study Program graduates will find a career in various companies as well as in academic sphere
Within the study program, students will have the opportunity to participate in solving projects announced by the student grant competition. Not only will they gain scholarship but also the opportunity to participate in current research at T4Innovations, in the first place, and in international conferences or internships.
Thanks to the IT4Innovations membership in PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) and its Summer of HPC program , the students have the opportunity to spend summer in one of the European supercomputing centres.
“I study the MSc. study programme Computer Sciences and am also employed at the IT4Innovations as a programmer. I work on optimization of data structures for storing spatio-temporal data. It is great that I have already been able to use the knowledge gained during my studies and also travel to conferences. In September I attended a EuroMPI conference in Bordeaux, France. I am happy I gained new experience that is not possible to be obtained at the school desk.”
Bc. Martin Moudrý,
student of the first year of MSc. study programme at VSB – TU Ostrava
The talented graduates can pursue their academic career. As its start, they can choose one of the related doctoral study programs offered by our university or other higher education institutions in the Czech Republic and abroad. One of the options is the Computational Sciences Doctoral Study Program guaranteed by IT4Innovations. If students decide to continue with their studies, they will have other opportunities to participate in international seasonal schools and important conferences, or go on internship to universities or research centres abroad.
„I believe that the opportunity to use the supercomputers at the IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center had an essential effect on my being awarded Fourier Prize. Anselm has not been in operation for a long time, yet I can hardly imagine my research work without exploitation of supercomputing resources at the IT4Innovations center.”
Researcher at IT4Innovations
Experts able to exploit high-performance computing resources in combination with up-to-date informatics, mathematical, and statistical data processing methods will find their career in software companies as well as in companies involved in big data mining, web search engines providers, or analytical departments of banks and other big companies.
Experts able to exploit knowledge of HPC in combination with other fields of study, such as computational mechanics or physics and chemistry, are also highly sought-after by research and development departments of big companies, by mechanical engineering as well as technological companies, and small and medium-sized high-tech companies.
Thanks to thorough language training and opportunity to participate in projects of international teams, it would not have to be difficult for the graduates to find their career in multinational companies.
“ŠKODA AUTO automotive company is aware of the need for employing and incorporating experts in the field of High Performance Computing and computational sciences in its research and development team. The graduates of the new Computational Sciences Study Program guaranteed by IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center will surely find their career in our company. The focus of our cooperation with IT4Innovations is seen in expert education, and therefore we have decided to support the HPC study program in Ostrava.”
Head of IT Services Department
“We have currently been collaborating with IT4Innovations National Supercomputing Center researchers on the development of new automotive industry sensors. Using the HPC tools in this particular case is of a great advantage in terms of decreasing the computational time required for solving each problem, and thus the whole development process. We have decided to support the Computational Sciences study programme with the view of the fact that it will provide enough highly qualified HPC experts so much needed in our industry.”
