'We appreciate our long-term cooperation and partnership with Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. We hope the equipment we present today will help students learn and promote new highly qualified telecommunications professionals in Ukraine. We hope they will make a significant contribution to Ukraine's digital economy,' said Zhang Ge, Director of Human Resources at Huawei Ukraine.

As part of the Huawei ICT Academy, teachers of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute passed certification in HCIA-Datacom and HCIA-WLAN.

HCIA-Datacom is a core course in network technologies. Students gain relevant knowledge and skills in routing and switching, security and wireless technologies, software-controlled networks, etc. 

The HCIA-Datacom course is the first educational course of the Huawei ICT Academy available in Ukrainian. The Faculty of Radio Engineering and the Department of International Relations of Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute translated HCIA-Datacom into Ukrainian. 

The Huawei ICT Academy offices are in such higher educational institutions as the National Technical University of Ukraine “Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute”, Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Kharkiv National University of Radio Electronics, Lviv Polytechnic National University, National Aviation University; State University of Telecommunications, Ivan Franko National University of Lviv, and STEP Computer Academy in Kharkiv. 

Huawei Ukraine cooperates with several Ukrainian universities in various scientific fields. For instance, in June 2021, Kyiv National Economic University named after Vadym Hetman published the results of the research project initiated by Huawei Ukraine Digital Economy: the impact of ICTs on human capital and the formation of future competencies.
