Huawei, a global leading ICT solutions provider, in partnership with Nigerian universities is set to cultivate local ICT talents, promote a greater understanding of ICT, increase interest and develop a healthy ecosystem for the sustainable growth of the sector among undergraduates. More than 10,000 students from 15 universities in Nigeria, including University of Nigeria, Ahmadu Bello University, Lead City University, America University of Nigeria and Federal University of Technology are expected to participate in an ICT contest which features learning of various subjects including cloud computing, artificial intelligence, mobile networks and big data.
The talent hunt tagged, “Nigeria ICT Talents Development Summit and Huawei ICT Competition Launch Ceremony” which will be held on Oct. 26th, at the Hilton Convention Centre in Abuja, select universities will also sign MoU with Huawei to launch Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) programme in these universities. HAINA is a nonprofit ICT career certification program which aims to increase employment opportunities for young people by exposing them to more ICT knowledge and skills required in the job market.
Huawei has now extended its HAINA programme to more than 150 leading universities worldwide, and this will be the first time for Huawei to bring the program to Nigeria.
Tank Li, managing director of Huawei Enterprise Nigeria, said these programmes are in line with Huawei’s sustainability strategy in bridging digital divide, promoting skill transfer and developing a win-win situation with local community. “As an international ICT innovator, we are committed to working with our academic and industrial partners in Nigeria to create more opportunities for individuals, and businesses in the country.
Through programs like ICT competition and HAINA, Huawei will continuously contribute to local ICT talents cultivation and practitioners upskilling, to lay a solid foundation for a healthier sectorial growth, fulfillment of government’s digitization strategies and stronger national ICT competitiveness.” he said.
