2018 past in the blink of an eye. As the first Huawei ICT academy established in the UK and one of the most successful operated Huawei ICT academies, University of Reading HAINA has achieved great success in the past 2018. Today it’s the time to review the most exciting moments of UoR HAINA.

Since it was established in 2015, in order to promote the talent eco-network as proposed by Huawei, University of Reading HAINA has been striving to deliver the most advanced ICT related courses to university students and cultivate the multifunctional and applied talents. In the past 3 years, HAINA enriched the programme content and launched the courses of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and Artificial Intelligence over the past two years and is going to introduce other popular ICT courses in the coming future. Owing to the well-structured content of the course, more than 50 students participated in our HCIA training courses and received the certificates authorised by Huawei in association with 100% exam passing rate. Apart from higher education training, HAINA also launched more than 20 supplier training courses and outreached more than 160 trainees. Through the training, HAINA has not only provided the cutting-edge ICT knowledge to the related companies, but also developed a more comprehensive ICT knowledge network between diverse parties.

With the goal to develop a strategic collaboration between higher education institutions and enterprises, HAINA in partnership with Tech Education (a major Huawei recognised training company) launched 2 master programmes in Henley Business School in September, 2017, namely MSc Information Management and MSc Business Technology Consulting. Both courses play an important role in cultivating ICT talents for the industry. Students, who pass the course, are granted a master’s degree accredited by University of Reading and receive professional industrial training with certification authorised by Huawei. Such a strategic movement not only enhances the collaboration base between enterprises and higher education institutions, but also provides the university students an opportunity to develop their ICT career path.
