DXC Technology Digital Futures Academy

This month marked an exceptional conclusion to the first semester of the DXC Technology UKI Digital Futures Academy (DFA). The program celebrated the achievements of its dedicated pupils with a series of enriching activities and well-deserved recognitions.

Students had the opportunity to explore state-of-the-art facilities, participate in hands-on coding sessions, and receive certificates acknowledging their hard work and accomplishments. These experiences not only enhanced their technical skills but also provided valuable insights into the dynamic field of digital technology.

Well done to all involved for their outstanding efforts! 

Looking forward to an amazing year 2!

As we look forward to an amazing year two, we are excited about the future prospects and continued success of the DFA program!
