The IT industry is a progressively evolving sector. Companies have to constantly innovate to ensure their technologies are current and up to date. This requires continuous investment in training staff locally and more often abroad which can be extremely expensive. In addition, local industry players have often expressed concerns regarding graduates completing their degrees without the necessary employability skills required by Industry to innovate and solve complex local problems (challenges).
Multinational vendor companies equally find it difficult to introduce their new technologies in the local market as there are no local skills to build upon. The companies have to invest heavily in bringing international consultants to implement their solutions or train their clients.
It is for these reasons that Strathmore University- @iLabAfrica Research Centre, has developed the Challenge Based Learning Programme, to address the gaping need for a steady channel of certified local capacity, equipped with both technical and soft skills.
@iLabAfrica, a Research and Innovation Centre at Strathmore University, in collaboration with industry has developed the Challenge Based Learning Programme for graduate students and organization staff. The programme will train participants to solve non-trivial business problems “the challenge” for local companies using leading technologies provided by the international vendors.
Mode of Delivery
The program runs for one year and is divided into two sessions:
*Certificate of participation will be given to participants upon successful completion of the Programme.
Participants will also receive certificates from partners who offer tool based training certificates.
