Huawei has partnered with Ghana’s Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to run a Huawei Authorized Information and Network Academy (HAINA) programme for students at the University. The HAINA initiative is a global ICT technology education programme which authorizes universities and tertiary education organizations to deliver Huawei certification courses to their students.
This is the first accreditation in Ghana with plans underway to spread to other universities. The programme adopts the university-enterprise cooperation model and includes training and industry certification in popular ICT technologies, such as WLAN, security, storage and cloud computing. Through HAINA, IT students at KNUST will acquire knowledge of cutting-edge ICT technology and gain hands-on practical training experiences. At present, KNUST students going through this HAINA lab will be able to obtain their HCNA/P-Cloud Computing certification.
Additionally, HAINA-trained graduates will be given first priority for internships and employment opportunities at Huawei and its partner companies.
