Proprietor and chancellor of Uganda Technology Management University (UTAMU) Prof Venansius Baryamureeba has asked government to make teaching of Information and Communications technology (ICT) skills mandatory at all levels of the education chain.
“It should be mandatory that ICT is embedded in the curriculum at every level of education that is universal ICT. We want to see a society where every higher institution of learning is an innovation hub,” he said.
Prof Baryamureeba was speaking at the graduation ceremony of Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology in Nakawa on Friday. A total of 531 students graduated with certificates and diplomas in ICT and related courses.
The ICT minister, Mr John Nasasira, said government is moving to ensure all training facilities have fully technology-backed facilities.
