Huawei to setup first Huawei ICT Academy in the UAE

Last updated:

Huawei is to set up the first Huawei ICT Academy in the UAE, donating equipment to the American University of Ras Al Khaimah, AURAK.

Representatives of Huawei visited the AURAK campus to initial the agreement and met the university’s President, Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim.

AURAK is the first educational institution in the UAE to sign a deal with Huawei, and the Academy is to be located within AURAK’s ICONET Center that specialises in research, teaching, incubation and training in ICT-related technologies. It will provide training and certification in various ICT areas including Internet security, cloud computing, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

AURAK is a nonprofit, government-owned institution of higher education which provides the local, regional and international communities with a North American-style education integrated with Arab customs and traditions. AURAK is licensed by the Ministry of Education in the United Arab Emirates and has been accredited in the United States of America by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) since December 2018. AURAK offers a total of 22 accredited undergraduate and graduate programs across a wide range of disciplines.

According to a Memorandum of Understanding signed in early 2019, Huawei and AURAK will collaborate in utilising training programmes to transfer ICT technologies to AURAK via the Huawei ICT Academy.

Huawei will deliver training and certification programmes to AURAK through the Huawei ICT Academy, provide the Huawei Certification Academy Instructor training service for AURAK faculty members, offer a scholarship for talented students, open the Knowledge Transfer Event Opportunity to students, and provide 10 student internships.

In return, AURAK will supply teaching facilities to accommodate Huawei ICT equipment for the Huawei ICT Academy, provide faculty members to become Huawei Certification Academy Instructors and propose the Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy Certification course as an optional non-academic course for students.

It will also liaise with local networking industries to deliver HAINA Network training to other professionals in the ICT industry throughout the UAE and work with Huawei to develop training schedules to meet student needs.
