The Khulisa Academy is a High-Performance Computing (HPC) training academy launched by Dell, that is designed to enable previously disadvantaged students to further enhance their IT capabilities. Here at Khulisa, our innovative approach to HPC empowers students by taking them through an intense two-year training program designed to challenge and stretch their capabilities.

“The essence of our academy lies within the name Khulisa, meaning ‘nurturing’ in isiZulu”


– Natasha Reuben, Head of Transformation, DellEMC
