SAMSUNG TO SUPPORT MALAWI DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION, SIGNS MOU WITH MUST

The Malawi University of Science and Technology- MUST has signed an MoU with Samsung that will see the two institutions train youths in IT skills including coding and programming at the yet-to-be-established Samsung Innovation Centre at MUST.

The Vice President of Samsung Central Africa, Sung Wong Jung and Vice Chancellor of MUST, Professor Address Malata, signed the MOU in Lilongwe. Professor Malata says Malawi stands to benefit from the MOU.

According to Professor Malata, the MOU is an opportunity to expand access to tertiary education, especially to youths who were not formally selected for university. She further says it will also help MUST staff to interact, learn and acquire modern technological knowledge and skills from experts at Samsung.

The coming of the Samsung Innovation Centre at MUST Campus is in line with the Malawi 2063 agenda pillar of industrialization. She says no country can achieve meaningful development without technological advancement.

“The coming of this project will help youths to hone advanced technological skills that will support Malawi’s aspirations as outlined in Malawi 2063,” Malata said.

In her remarks, the Head of Transformation at Samsung Lehle Khoza said the initiative will help to transform the economy of Malawi as more youths will be equipped with innovative skills.

“Our organization is committed to creating opportunities that will see the youth becoming innovative in Malawi and hence help in artificial intelligence programming,” Khoza said

Samsung is a leading South Korean multinational electronics company headquartered in Yeongtong-gu. It started its project of supporting African Universities mainly in the SADC region with Samsung Innovation Campus in 2019.
