The year I spent in Edinburgh was one of the most enjoyable in my life. Very friendly staff and classmates, together with excellent facilities and a beautiful city created a welcoming and supportive environment. Coupling this with a teaching method that is one of the best I have encountered and interesting course content resulted in me learning a lot of useful information and developing important skills. I am very thankful to EPCC for such a wonderful experience.
Studying the MSc in HPC at the EPCC, Edinburgh, has been the best decision I've made in the last years. It was the first time I flew away from home and, for me, Edinburgh will always remain as my second home. I've met a lot of friends, some of which are still living there. Studying HPC has been really fulfilling and the possibility of using real HPC resources is by itself a reason to study at EPCC, but in addition I've also found many outstanding teachers during the year. The degree has turned out to be the reason for being offered the PhD position, where I currently work.
