This international master track titled 'Performance in Software, Media and Scientific Computing' or PSMSC is a one-year programme taught by the University of Toulouse. It prepares master students for top level careers or PhD programs in several application domains that require use of hardware, software and programming techniques to accelerate data-intensive computations and ensure reliable execution of cutting-edge applications. The PSMSC track combines a set of common core lectures with concentration courses aligned with career preparation needs for each student. Specifics about performance in software development (SD), media processing (MP) and scientific computing (SC) are taught through three concentration areas.
Students must select one concentration area (SD or MP or SC), follow the 6 technical and scientific courses of this area and scientific english lectures, establish a research methodology report, and reach overall the number of required credits (39 ECTS for the courses, plus 3 ECTS for english and 18 ECTS for the internship). Students’ studies are based on an academic calendar beginning in mid-September and ending in July. The year (a 2nd year of MSc, see application conditions below) is divided into two semesters: Fall semester (from September to January) and Spring semester (from February to July). Courses may be taught in English during Fall semester. Spring semester consists both in a research methodology project and a long internship proposed by companies or research institutes.
Students must have successfully completed at least 4 years of higher education before entering into our PSMSC track. Applications are expected from students enrolled in (finishing) their first year of master (or alternatively from 2nd year engineer students). Graduation at MSc. level is expected after one year in the PSMSC programme.
Our track welcomes applications starting from Feb. 2022. Applications will be evaluated by the end of June 2022 (first session) and August 2022 (second session). Core courses will start Sept 28th, 2022 in downtown Toulouse (ENSEEIHT Campus), France.
