ACK signs MoU with Huawei to Establish ICT Academy

ACK held a ceremony for signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Huawei Technologies Kuwait. The MoU was signed for the purpose of establishing Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Huawei Academy at ACK. ACK will be the first private higher education institution to establish an ICT Huawei Academy in Kuwait.

Based on its industry leading ICT technologies and global ICT practices, Huawei has developed a full range of ICT career certifications. Huawei Technologies Kuwait aims to train students in the latest technological developments such as Big Data, cloud computing, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and pervasive technologies.

Through the course, students will absorb the knowledge and expertise required to benefit the society and develop solutions for potential challenges. Huawei aims to provide robust technological infrastructure and intellect to nurture future ICT leaders in Kuwait and the region as part of its support of Kuwait’s 2035 vision to create a fully connected and smart city.

Commenting on this cooperation Prof. Isam Zabalawi, ACK President, said, “We believe that ICT in general is reshaping the field of higher education for the present and the future. ACK is keen to make sure that we have the proper environment and facilities in order to prepare our graduates for the workplace. It’s a great opportunity for our students and for Huawei, as we can consider our students and our faculty as ambassadors for Huawei, not only in Kuwait but also in the region.”

From his end, Dr. Mohamed Abdul Niby, ACK Dean of the School of Engineering, commented: “This memorandum of understanding defines the guidelines of a strong cooperation with Huawei. This initial step for developing the Huawei ICT Academy at ACK will reshape and enrich significantly the ICT knowledge and skills of ACK students.”
