Huawei Kenya launched their new initiative UniTech Talk a regular lecture series for University lecturers, students and tech enthusiasts to share the latest technologies, industry trends, development policies and insights.
During the pandemic, the technology sector has played a critical role in minimizing disruptions to the economy and creating new opportunities for economic and social development. Kenyans and Kenyan businesses all across the country are using technology now more than ever before, which will help jumpstart the digital economy in the country.
The UniTech Talk series will help position the Kenyan ICT industry to take advantage of the latest technologies, providing more awareness, knowledge and insights on where the opportunities are and the technical capabilities to grasp them.
The series complements the ICT Academy program that partners with universities and training institutes to provide advanced, in-depth, globally certified programs to hundreds of lecturers and thousands of students a year in Kenya alone.
The inaugural UniTech Talk was introduced by the Huawei Kenya CEO, Mr Will Meng, and kicked off with the Huawei Kenya Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Mr Steven Zheng. The latter gave a presentation on ICT Industry Trends and Insights.
Announcements of the next in the series will be made on Twitter @huaweikenya and Facebook @HuaweiTechnologiesKenya. Meanwhile, ICT students are encouraged to sign-up for the 1-week long Seeds for the Future online training program in September organized together with the ICT Authority. Applications are currently open until August 29.
