The Ghana-India Kofi Annan Centre of Excellence in ICT (GI-KACE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Department of Computer and Electrical Engineering of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (DEEC-UENR), Sunyani to jointly conduct research in emerging technologies.
Under the MoU, the two institutions will jointly conduct research in emerging areas such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT).
It will also allow the students of DEEC-UENR to undertake internship programmes in the GI-KACE’s workshops and facilities to have hands-on training on what they learn in the classrooms.
The Director-General of GI-KACE, Dr Collins Yeboah-Afari, said the MoU forms part of the efforts of the two institutions to contribute to the government’s digitalization agenda.
“For us as an institution, this is part of our bit to help the government’s digitalization agenda. We see this relationship as a building block that will help elevate both institutions’ plans for achieving the government’s IT Transformation Agenda,” he reiterated.
On his part, the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Energy and Natural Resources (UENR), Prof. Elvis Asare-Bediako, said the MoU would enable the institutions to support each other and that would go a long way to assist the government’s efforts of digitalizing the economy.
