Huawei signs pact with Botswana Open University
Huawei Botswana has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Botswana Open University (BOU) for the establishment of an ICT academy at the higher learning institution. Through the MoU, Huawei is striving to meet its obligation to cultivate knowledge and impact communities with the necessary information that can assist or enable them to lead independent and productive lives, said Ye Huihui, Huawei Botswana managing director.
He said the MoU means that BOU is now fully registered under the Huawei ICT Academy and has a full mandate to resource through online or directly in the field of routing and switching. Huawei will continue to support BOU in the training of instructors to match learning demands, updating of the course content and evaluating of the institutional performance, he said. Through this programme, Huawei aims to develop two million ICT professionals and popularize digital skills over the next five years by collaborating with universities.
