In pursuit of its aim to align talent and education with real-life requirements of the ICT industry, Huawei Technologies Malaysia’s ICT Academy,
announced that it has partnered with University of Malaya.
The strategic partnership between Huawei ICT Academy and University of Malaya will promote a greater understanding of ICT through technologies training, increase interest and develop talents with practical skills for the students and the community.
One of the key objectives of this program is to cultivate ICT talent and help students become employment ready.
At the same time, the program aids in filling the global ICT skills gap by creating a bridge between academic education and industry. Together within all the ICT academies, there will be more than 3000 students in Malaysia who will benefit from Huawei’s certification training course in the initial term of three years.
Started globally in 2016, Huawei ICT Academy through Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) programme aims to authorize academic institutions to deliver Huawei Certification training to university students.
In Malaysia, currently there are seven universities that have signed up to become a part of Huawei ICT Academy namely Universiti Malaya, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman and Taylor’s University.
At the Award Ceremony, Huawei Academy also introduced Huawei ICT Competition Malaysia 2018-2019, an initiative for colleges and universities across the world that will recognize excellence in ICT talent and train them to contribute towards a stronger ICT ecosystem.
The interested Academies can contact the local Huawei representatives and discuss the intention to get certified by Huawei ICT Academy. The registration for the Huawei ICT Competition will be opened starting 18 th – 23 rd November 2018.
