Advancing high performance computer systems

The HiPEDS Centre focuses on High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems.  First launched in 2014 as a 4-year integrated EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training, it continues to combine the world-class strengths in Imperial’s Departments of Computing, Electrical and Electronic Engineering and industrial partners with high-calibre doctoral student graduates.

This has huge breadth, offering research opportunities ranging from implantable smart sensors to secure cloud service providers, and all points in between.  Together we tackle the technologies and underlying theory that provide the keys to open up new applications, products, industries, businesses, and solutions to the problems of society.  

HiPEDS relaunched as a Research Centre in May 2022.  To keep updated on the Centre's activities, follow us on LinkedIn.

The strategic vision of the original CDT was to transition into a world-leading research centre focused on:

i) Strengthening the UK's lead in research and innovation of High Performance Embedded and Distributed Systems;

ii) Delivering the next-generation leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs from both our postdoctoral and doctoral researcher community;

iii) Shaping new advances in high performance computer systems, alongside industrial and international collaborations.
