The CHPC offers a broad spectrum of practical courses to meet the needs of users.

Regular (usually annual) courses include:

  • Users' induction course
  • Introduction to Linux, scripting and Python for scientists
  • Parallel programming

The CHPC has an education and outreach programme to create a public awareness of the role of computational science, particularly high-performance computing in everyday life, and also to promote computational science in schools and at tertiary institutions and promote careers in computational science and engineering.

The majority of CHPC Staff in the Research and HCD Department have taught formal modules or presented advanced courses at tertiary educational institutions (TEIs). The CHPC encourages TEIs to create and offer formal courses and degrees relevant to the context of high-performance computing: computer applications and advanced computer engineering.
