The Ghana Telecom University College (GTUC) and Hauwei Technologies S.A Ghana Limited have signed a memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on cooperation in Accra.
Under in terms of the MOU, Ghana Telecom University College and Huawei will, among other things, establish a formal relationship in order to promote capacity to promote capacity building and the exchange of best practice; involve Huawei in all major activities organized by GTUC , activities such as participation in career fairs, job recruitment, training and related activities; and to enhance professional skills, of GTUC and Huawei staff through training staff interactions and exchange of experience and information.
Huawei Technologies is a leading telecommunication solutions provider in over 100 countries and have served 45 of the world’s top 50 telecommunication operators, as well as one third of the world’s population.
The President of the University Dr. Osei Darkwa, said the signing of the MOU signified a concrete step in fostering closer co-operation between the school and Huawei Technologies.
He noted that the collaboration with Huawei would help to advance mutual interests in the rapidly evolving fields of information technology, information services and telecommunications.
He said it would help position GTUC as a leader in technology-enhanced education in Ghana and the sub-region, and provide the critically needed hands-on training to the students during their studies at the school. This will broaden the horizon of education for the student and place them in an advantageous position after they leave the wall of this institution to the occupational world, Dr. Darkwa emphasized.
Diana Ayem, special assistant to the Managing Director of Huawei Ghana, told Biztechafrica that with signing of the MOU, students would be selected from University for placement with Huawei for their internship training. She said this would go a long way towards giving selected students hands-on experience.
Ayem said the internship programme would help students build a platform to broaden their horizons, acquire certain job skills and exposure and help them to adjust quickly to the working environment once they were out of college.
