Huawei, the world’s largest provider of ICT infrastructure, recently inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with American International University Bangladesh (AIUB), with the intention to build an ICT Academy to enhance talent development and create learning opportunities for students.
This ICT Academy is part of Huawei’s commitment to developing the country’s ICT ecosystem and providing youngsters with future-ready skills. Hence, Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited has built the country’s fifth ICT Academy at AIUB. Previously, Huawei established four more ICT Academies at other universities, including BUET, KUET, RUET, and JUST.
The signing event was attended by AIUB Vice Chancellor Dr. Carmen Z Lamagna, deans of several faculties, and heads of various departments, as well as key officials from Huawei Bangladesh.
“Developing a sustainable ICT talent ecosystem is essential for maintaining the current growth curve maintained by Bangladesh. With the advantage of the ICT academy in partnership with Huawei, the students of AIUB will be able to improve their existing ICT knowledge while gaining new sets of skills. I highly appreciate Huawei’s initiative for upskilling our students and contributing to the country’s ICT growth.”Dr. Carmen Z Lamagna, Vice Chancellor, AIUB.
It is worth noting that Huawei established the ICT Academy, an industry-academia collaboration project, in 2013. Students at this academy will have access to Huawei’s upgraded online learning platform, which includes a variety of ICT-related courses. Furthermore, teachers will be able to become Huawei-certified trainers, following which they would train students.
“Together with the eco-partners, Huawei would like to make a contribution to the country to achieve its goals related to digitalization. The most important aspect of this is to develop a sound ICT ecosystem. To that end, Huawei has been working with various partners to create an ecosystem that will help nurture ICT talents, who will then contribute to the growth of the country. This ICT Academy partnership is also part of our continued commitment to preparing the youth for the future world.”Karl Yu Ying, Country Director of the Public Affairs and Communications Department of Huawei Bangladesh.
Huawei currently operates 1,500 similar ICT academies in over 90 countries, including the United Kingdom, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. This initiative involves over 927 institutions and universities in total, assisting thousands of students globally.
