Huawei, Makerere University to offer ICT courses

The Minister for ICT and National Guidance Frank Tumwebaze has asked students studying computing and information technologies in Uganda to focus more on innovation while emphasising skills that will help them to earn a living, reports The Monitor.

The minister, who was launching the Huawei ICT Academy course in Uganda as well as flagging off the 2019 Seeds for the Future students who will leave for China in June, added that students who do innovations that do not help them to earn or cure a problem in society must not waste time on such courses.

Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, on top of partnering with the government of Uganda to improve the skills of ICT students through the Seeds for the Future programme, has also signed a memorandum of understanding with Makerere University to host the Huawei ICT Academy course where over 1,000 students will receive training, and certification by Huawei.
