The Faculty of Engineering (FOE) at Antonine University (UA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nokia, the leader in telecommunication, and Multilane, a pioneer in data center interconnects and monitoring tools.
This Memorandum of Understanding aims to create a more knowledge-based economy.
The signing ceremony hosted numerous officials and ambassadors, highlighting innovation by training engineers, entrepreneurs, skilled professionals of the future, as well as engaged students.
This opportunity will also motivate the learners and Lebanon’s youth to be involved in many projects to aid the Lebanese community.
During the ceremony, Lebanon’s Minister of Telecommunications, Johnny Corm, highlighted that this partnership will come as an important initiative that will contribute to creating economic recovery.
Adding that “Lebanese students are known to be innovative, motivated, and hard workers.”
MultiLane’s CEO and Founder, Fady Daou, confirmed that this collaboration will create high-tech jobs, offer assistance to lessen talent exodus, and provide an opportunity to rebuild Lebanon.
This agreement will empower UA engineering students through lectures, workshops, and seminars, allowing them to develop skills to strive academically and professionally and eventually meet the needs of the changing social, economic and cultural structures.
