GIK Institute of Engineering Sciences and Technology and Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to work together, develop a cooperative working relationship and bridge the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) knowledge and skills gap. Under the MoU, Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) has been set up at GIK, which authorizes the Institute to deliver Huawei certification courses to its students. The collaboration will offer students a greater opportunity to learn the latest industrial trends and technologies and become Huawei certified in support of their subsequent careers in the ICT industry. Through the HAINA program, both organizations will cooperate to support the regional ICT education, share knowledge, and build a better ICT talent eco-system. The MoU will also allow GIK to work with Huawei to explore other opportunities for collaboration between the two organizations.
The Huawei Academy was inaugurated by Mr. Zhao Lijian, Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of the People’s Republic of China on 10th April, 2018. The Academy is currently offering the professional Huawei Certified Network Associate (HCNA) trainings and plans to offer more advanced level trainings in future.
