Objectives

The objective of the PDCS Master's program is to educate professionals in computer science for both research and industry in the domains of distributed systems as well as parallel and high performance computing. Both fundamental and applied courses will give students a wide and complete training involving theoretical basis and applications. This will allow students an easy integration in the world of industry and research, while having an appropriate capacity to adapt to future developments in the domains of distributed and parallel computing.

Course Prerequisites

A generalised course in Informatics (Computer Science) is desirable; however, students who have completed scientific undergraduate studies in another field (Mathematics or Physics), but have foundational knowledge in Informatics, will also be able to follow this course.

Skills
  • Understand the challenges of distributed and parallel systems, current and future.

  • Be able to assess the contribution of distributed and parallel algorithms in real applications and protocols

  • Be able to design and prove distributed and parallel algorithms, and formally analyse their complexities (in time, memory, communication, energy, etc.).

  • Become familiar with parallel programming paradigms.

  • Understand advanced C++ programming techniques in order to design concise and efficient code.

Post-graduate profile

During the PDCS M1, students will acquire solid understanding of distributed algorithms, parallel computation and advanced programming. This offers them a wide range of alternatives to steer their M2 either towards algorithms or towards programming through the selection of optional teaching units. Furthermore, the skills acquired will help graduates enter the corporate and research world with greater ease in the future.

Career prospects

Further studies: Master's 2 in Informatics.

With the development of the Internet and supercomputers, this field is currently booming, graduates from the PDCS Master's course are very much in demand. The Master's prepares students to go onto a doctoral programme and write a thesis, either joining a research organisation in the public or private sector, or entering the R&D department of a large company. It also gives students the opportunity to easily join the industrial world, in companies that have substantial computing needs or develop cutting-edge software; to work in the R&D departments of large companies; or to create and participate in start-ups in the fields of computing and distributed applications.

Programme

Toutes les UEs listées ci-dessous devront être validées au cours du parcours (M1 / M2): il est requis d'acquerir 60 ECTS par niveau, pour un total de 120 ECTS à l'issue des deux années.
Pour valider le parcours-type PDCS (M1 & M2), les étudiants devront valider toutes les UE dont l'intitulé est [PDCS].
À celles-ci s'ajoutent :

* [ISD] Introduction à l'apprentissage
* [ANO] Blockchain
* [ANO] Programmation MPI
* [ANO] Internet of Things

Pour atteindre 120 crédit ECTS, chaque étudiant devra compléter son parcours avec 4 UE dont l'intitulé est Soft skills - xxxx, un TER-Stage (en M1), un stage long (en M2), ainsi qu'un libre choix de cours d'autres parcours-types pour compléter les 120 crédits ECTS.
