Concurrent and Parallel Programming

A specialisations within the Master's Programme in Computer Science at the Department of Information Technology.

The Master's Programme in Concurrent and Parallel Programming is a specialisation within the Master's Programme in Computer Science at the Department of Information Technology.

Modern computers can execute many instructions simultaneously. To take full advantage of this, software must be designed with concurrency and parallelism in mind. Become an expert at designing and implementing software that leverages the capabilities of modern hardware, from smartphones to clouds and supercomputers.

Lead the manycore revolution

The Master in Concurrent and Parallel Programming is a 2-year programme at the Department of Information Technology, Uppsala University. The programme covers software development for concurrency and parallelism; modeling, testing and verification of concurrent systems; energy-efficient computing and advanced computer architectures. The programme leads to a Master of Science (120 credits) with Computer Science as the main field of study.

Courses are taught by world-class researchers and educators from UPMARC, Europe's premier research centre for multicore programming.
