Programming of parallel computers - methods and tools

"Students graduating with a competence in engineering software for parallel systems
will have a distinct advantage in the work force over those who do not."

--- M. Oskin, The Revolution Inside the Box, Comm. ACM 51(7), July 2008

TDDE65 is the new course code for the course TDDC78 since 2024. Nothing else has changed.

Announcements 2024

  • Research project assistant position available
    I am recruiting 1-2 student assistants ("amanuens") 20%-50% for a large research project in distributed, parallel and heterogeneous computing for the edge/cloud continuum. The work (C/C++ programming, system administration, help with experiments) could be suitably combined with an internal master thesis project in the same topic area.
