Huawei Partners with Khon Kaen University to help build a strong and sustainable ICT ecosystem

Cloud, 5G and other emerging technologies will help KKU affirm its leadership as the medical hub supporting the Northeastern region’s 20 hospitals

Huawei Technologies (Thailand) Co., Ltd. has announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Khon Kaen University (KKU), as part of its continuous efforts to nurture new digital talent and build a heathy talent ecosystem for Thailand’s ICT sector.

The MoU was signed during a ceremony held at Khon Kaen University on March 24, 2022, by Associate Professor Dr. Charnchai Panthongviriyakul, President of Khon Kaen University, and Mr. Kevin Cheng, President of the Enterprise Business Group, Huawei Technology (Thailand) Co., Ltd., in the presence of several senior Huawei executives and university officials.

Under the terms of the 3-year agreement, Huawei and KKU will seek to strengthen their relationship and explore skill development opportunities for KKU students and professors by benefitting from Huawei’s knowledge, expertise and training programs provided by the Huawei ICT Academy.  Students will also be encouraged to participate in talent-enablement platforms such as the Huawei ICT Competition and the Huawei ICT Job Fair.

Using Cloud services, 5G and other emerging technologies, the Huawei-KKU collaboration also aims to help the University reinforce its position as the medical hub for Thailand’s 20 hospitals located in the Northeastern region. To help spark innovative minds and develop practical skills, Huawei will donate tools such as IdeaHub smart boards and Huawei Certified ICT Associate (HCIA) Lab sets that will make the learning experience more efficient.

During the signing ceremony, Associate Professor Dr. Charnchai Panthongviriyakul, President of Khon Kaen University, said: “This collaboration is an important step for KKU in light of Thailand’s digitalization strategy. As cutting-edge technologies have become more and more crucial for upgrading and empowering the education sector, we will create more advanced learning and  skills acquisition opportunities for our students. I would like to thank Huawei Thailand for this great opportunity that will enable KKU to maintain its high ranking and preserve its reputation as a leading university in the country’s Northeastern region, especially in the medical field,” he commented.

“The signing of this MoU clearly demonstrates Khon Kaen University's vision to transform itself in the digital era, using emerging technology for developing long-term teaching and learning models,” declared Mr. Kevin Cheng, President of the Enterprise Business Group, Huawei (Thailand).  “We will support Khon Kaen University with the latest ICT innovations, and encourage professors and students alike to get Huawei certification that is widely accepted and internationally recognised. This, in turn, will benefit the wider community, to support the country with top talents and tackle the challenges of fresh ICT developments,” he concluded.
