Today’s supercomputers are the most powerful calculating machines ever invented, capable of performing more than a thousand million million calculations every second. This gives scientists and engineers a powerful new tool to study the natural world: computer simulation.

This free online course will introduce you to what supercomputers are, how they are used and how we can exploit their full computational potential to make scientific breakthroughs. The course is conceptual so no programming experience is required!

The course has been developed by the Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe (PRACE) and EPCC at The University of Edinburgh in collaboration with SURFsara from The Netherlands.
