Huawei and Buet sign MoU to set up the first ICT Academy in Bangladesh

In the next two years, more than 700,000 new jobs will be created in the global ICT sector.

And the massive expansion of the sector in the next ten years is likely to result in a shortage of around seven crore ICT professionals.

Huawei wants to run a special ICT academy in association with engineering universities in Bangladesh so that young ICT students in Bangladesh can carve a niche for themselves in the global professional market, as per a press release in this regard.

In accordance with that plan, Huawei and BUET are planning to set up the first ICT Academy at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), the top engineering university in Bangladesh.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between the two parties to that end on Thursday.

Linzhijun, Vice President, Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited and Dr Satya Prasad Majumder, Vice-Chancellor, Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), has signed the MoU on behalf of their respective organizations at the signing ceremony held at BUET Council Building. Deputy Minister for Education Mohibul Hassan Chowdhury, MP, joined online as the chief guest on the occasion.

Tao Guangyao, COO of Huawei Technologies (Bangladesh) Limited, other senior officials of Huawei and BUET teachers were also present at the event.

This special ICT Academy will be set up in the BUET building by April this year, where technology and adequate equipment will be ensured.

There will be connectivity through which BUET students will have the opportunity to communicate with more than 1,200 instructors from around the world. There will be 83 certification programs on 19 different subjects.

The course and certification will be coordinated by Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA), which is basically the Huawei-BUET ICT Academy in Bangladesh.

Students will be given three types of grade certificates based on their achievements from this ICT Academy - Associate, Professional, and Expert. In this process, students will be able to adapt themselves to the job market, and finally, a job fair will be organized for them.

Huawei plans to set up more than 900 such ICT academies around the world, and every year more than 45,000 students will receive education from these academies. 

According to the plan, 250 students from BUET will participate in this training. So far, the academy has started its activities in several other countries, including Pakistan, Zambia, and China.
