The Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism addresses the most disruptive challenge faced by the computing industry for 50 years. Read more

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Pervasive Parallelism addresses the most disruptive challenge faced by the computing industry for 50 years. Driven by performance and energy constraints, parallelism is now crucial to all layers of the computing infrastructure, from smartphones to globally distributed systems.

This EPSRC-sponsored programme tackles the many urgent interconnected problems raised by parallel systems. How do we design programming languages for such systems? How should the architecture be structured? Which theories, tools and methodologies will allow us to reason about the behaviour of this new hardware and software?

We urgently need answers to these questions to maintain the familiar pace of technological progress, and the benefits it brings to so much of modern life. Spanning theory and practice, the centre addresses this "pervasive parallelism challenge", educating the graduates who will undertake the fundamental research and design required to transform methods and practices. As a pervasive parallelism graduate, you will develop not only deep expertise in your own specialism, but crucially, an awareness of its relationships to other facets of the challenge. These cross-cutting synergies will enable us to unlock the true potential of current and future technologies.

This MSc is the first part of a longer 1+3 (MSc by Research + PhD) programme offered by the School through the EPSRC.

Our supervisors offer internationally leading expertise across all aspects of the pervasive parallelism challenge. These include parallel programming, wireless and mobile networking, reasoning about interaction, models of concurrent computation, energy efficient computing, systems architecture, and performance modelling.

Many more topics can be found be exploring the centre's pages and those of its supervision team and research teams. Most importantly, we believe that key research insights can be made by working across the boundaries of conventional groupings.

Training and support

We offer a four year programme, focused throughout on your development into an independent researcher, under the guidance of an expert supervision team. In the first year, you will undertake a small number of courses, and a large introductory research project, together with a range of sessions on transferable research skills.

Courses are designed to broaden your awareness of pervasive parallelism. Successful students will be awarded a Master of Research degree at this point. From this basis, the subsequent three years will be spent developing and pursuing a PhD research project, under the close supervision of your primary and secondary supervisors.

Our industrial partnerships and engagement programme will ensure that your research is informed by real world case-studies and will provide a source of diverse internship opportunities.

You will have opportunities to take up three- to six-month internships with leading companies in this area, including ARM, Intel, IBM and Microsoft, and to participate in our industrial engagement programme, exchanging ideas and challenges with our sponsor companies at brainstorming and networking events.

The School of Informatics holds a Silver Athena SWAN award, in recognition of our commitment to advance the representation of women in science, mathematics, engineering and technology. The School is deploying a range of strategies to help female staff and students of all stages in their careers and we seek regular feedback from our research community on our performance.

Facilities

You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities from on-chip accelerators including GPGPUs and multicore CPUs to the supercomputer scale systems hosted by the Edinburgh Parallel Computing Centre.

More broadly, the award-winning Informatics Forum is an international research facility for computing and related areas. It houses more than 400 research staff and students, providing office, meeting and social spaces.

It also contains two robotics labs, an instrumented multimedia room, eye-tracking and motion capture systems, and a full recording studio amongst other research facilities.

Overview

There is a great need for suitably qualified engineers to fulfill the existing and future needs of the global smart economy. This course addresses that need by providing an exciting range of topical modules and a state-of-the-art engineering facility. The programme also offers the student a chance to develop their research skills in a full-time three month project.

In the world of increasingly connected things and people, electronic engineers develop the technology that is the interface between the digital and the physical worlds. With the increasing pervasiveness of electronics enhanced things, and the need for ever-present wire-free communication, there is an increasing demand for engineers with experience in wireless communications systems and embedded computing systems.

The internet of things will lead to billions of wirelessly connected devices that will fundamentally change our approach to wireless systems and networks. To address this, there is a need for well qualified graduates who can design solutions based on solid understanding of the wireless environment and electronic hardware.
Similarly, as we continue to embed intelligence in everything from home appliances to cars and wearable sensors to robotic systems, there is growing need for engineers who understand the unique problems of real time application deadlines, resource constrained computing environments, and embedded intelligence.
The ME Electronic Engineering has been designed to provide two specialized module sets that introduce advanced techniques and topical content: one focusing on wireless communications and the other on embedded systems. These are supported by core modules which provide techniques that are widely applied and reusable across a range of engineering applications.
The programme has been designed to have a large project element to allow students to demonstrate their expertise in their chosen specialism. In addition students will be invited to present their work in an open day to invited local industry leaders. A small number of placements may be available for students graduating in 2016 (to be confirmed).
