The Catholic University of Eastern Africa has entered into a partnership with Huawei Technologies to offer technical and certification training to its students through the Huawei authorized training curriculum and tools.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice Chancellor, Very Rev. Prof. Stephen Mbugua welcomed the partnership and expressed his hopes that it would help enrich the training of our Computer Science students.
Su Shuqi, the manager in charge of Training and Certification at Huawei noted that the training would greatly help to bridge the gap between academia and industry.
The Dean of the Faculty of Science, Dr. Kimathi indicated that, “this is an important milestone as CUEA seeks to diversify the offerings available to our students, especially in computer science”.
CUEA was chosen for this partnership due to its strengths in being located in a serene environment, excellent facilities and related resources.
With this MoU, the university is now certified and authorized by Huawei to deliver official technical and certification training to its students using the Huawei authorized training curriculum and tools. This will go a long way in building ICT Talent in Kenya and Africa at large.
Some of the lecturers of the university (Computer Science department) are already trained to offer the curricula to our students. A number of students have also been trained and are already brand ambassadors for the program.
In September 2018, the University achieved the status of a Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA).
