RAS AL KHAIMAH, 14th January, 2019 (WAM) -- The American University of Ras Al Kaimah, AURAK, and Huawei Tech, have announced their collaboration 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, provide a scholarship for talented students, open the Knowledge Transfer Event Opportunity to students, and provide ten student internships.

Innovation is vital to enabling the UAE to transform into a digital country, and it starts by enabling its youth.
