Tech company partners with universities

Staff and students from NUST, University of Namibia and International University of Management attended an induction workshop hosted by Kula Information Technology Systems.

The company availed internship opportunities to students from the three institutions and the workshop was held to enable the cohort to become familiar with workplace conduct. Soft skills were highly regarded in the workshop as an essential element to get the students ready to enter the job market with the right attitude.

Kula Information Technology systems signed a Memorandum of Understanding with NUST last year, and committed to mentor students in IT-related matters and other business functions.

“We appreciate this gesture from our partner. Mentorship is the cornerstone for skills development which will improve the employability of graduates,” remarked Martha Namutuwa, an Industry Liason Officer at NUST’s Cooperative Education Unit (CEU).

CEU has over the years advocated for strong partnerships between academia and the private sector as a means of ensuring that classroom education remains relevant to industry needs through the practical exposure that students gain during the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) course.
