As an expert in high-performance computing and quantum computing, you are in demand wherever large data centres are set up or used. You will find these more and more frequently in Germany, but the international market also offers jobs for you. Since the programme at DIT teaches you the general basics of data centre management, you can be employed as an expert in both academic and private data centres (medium-sized companies and upwards). The focus on high-performance computing and quantum computing is currently being massively expanded with corresponding specialist personnel. Larger companies that perform complex computations themselves or provide them as service providers for others can also make good use of graduates like you. Your tasks range from designing a system together with the customer, to planning and setting it up, to programming. You can also take over the maintenance of systems, i.e. you make sure that the system as a whole runs fail-safe and intrusion-proof. In any case, you can be there to see how technology develops even before it changes our everyday lives in the future.
In this profession, it is quite advantageous to have at least an idea of neighbouring areas, even if you may have specialised in a slightly different field in everyday life. You bring along mathematically sound and logical thinking as your personal qualities. You also have integrits and a willingness to communicate in your everyday work.
You can build a career in one of the following professional fields:
