Education & Training


ICHEC is actively engaged in various educational & training activities. These include:

  • Training courses
  • Graduate programmes
  • Summer Scholarship
  • Workshops/conferences

Training Courses

ICHEC has developed a number of training courses covering selected topics of High Performance Computing that it teaches on-site at its member institutions.

Graduate Programmes

As HPC becomes a vital tool in many scientific disciplines, ICHEC takes part in formal teaching activities (e.g. course modules, lectures, training, project work), in particular within graduate programmes related to HPC/computational science.

Summer Scholarship Scheme

The ICHEC Summer Scholarships offers funding and opportunities for senior undergraduate students worldwide to undertake 10-week summer projects located in ICHEC offices in Galway/Dublin.


ICHEC organises workshops and participate in relevant conferences in order to better educate its users (e.g. the Quantum ESPRESSO Workshop and to promote its activities (i.e. community outreach).
