About

Designing efficient, easy-to-maintain and correct parallel and distributed systems is challenging - a challenge inherent to the complexity of managing multiple machines, many users and very large data sets. Parallel and Distributed Systems at Institut Polytechnique de Paris equips students to address this challenge and related research questions.

Overview

Parallel and distributed systems are ubiquitous in many applications in our daily life including AI, online games, social networks, web services and healthcare simulations. These systems distribute computation over many computing units because they have to sustain massive workloads that cannot fit into a single computer. Designing efficient, easy-to-maintain and correct parallel and distributed systems is challenging - a challenge inherent to the complexity of managing multiple machines, many users and very large data sets.

Students will learn the theory and practice that underpin these systems with courses ranging from operating systems, compilation and large-scale distributed middleware to the algorithmic and mathematical foundations of distributed and parallel systems. The ultimate goal of the Parallel and Distributed Systems at Institut Polytechnique de Paris  is to train the next generation of researchers and R&D engineers that will lead innovation in parallel and distributed systems.

Students interested early on by research are advised to apply for a PhD Track in this field (combined Master and PhD). It enables a personalized master program, early immersion in research labs and a progressive development of the thesis studies. 

Career:

After completing the two-year program, students will be equipped to

  • Pursue a PhD in computer science at Institut Polytechnique de Paris or another highly ranked university
  • Join the R&D department of an innovative IT company
