The Tshwane University of Technology’s Soshanguve South Campus has just become home to the Huawei Authorised Information and Network Academy (HAINA). This followed the signing of a collaboration agreement between the University and ICT and telecommunications firm, Huawei to launch this academy. 

The HAINA program will include courses to explore networking or IP certifications, and this will then be expanded to other ICT technologies such as WLAN, security, storage and cloud computing.

HAINA has been given equipment, software and ICT certification courses, and the University will provide educators to deliver content to students.

"TUT is pleased to partner with Huawei for this program, to assist our senior students with technological challenges and help them gain competitive skills so that they benefit the community," said Executive Dean: ICT, Professor Maredi Mphahlele.

The two partners said that training and certification will be provided to instructors for each course direction and courses will be customised according to the University's requirements.

Organisers have confirmed that TUT HAINA alumni will be given first preference for internships and employment opportunities at Huawei and its partner companies.

Alex Du, Managing Director, Huawei Enterprise South Africa, said the company is honoured to work with the University to provide students with up-to-date ICT knowledge and skills that will nurture the next generation of ICT professionals in South Africa. "Huawei believes that knowledge will create opportunities, and education is of key importance to support effective and sustainable growth."

The HAINA program has been extended to over 130 universities worldwide.
