President of the Information Technology Institute (ITI) Heba Saleh said that the institute concluded the training of 10,000 university students from various engineering and technical faculties in a number of technological disciplines across several governorates through its Creative Egypt Digital Centres (Creativa).
According to a press release issued today, about 10,000 university youth were trained throughout a total of 50,000 training hours during summer training camps.
Saleh added that the primary importance of the summer camps lies in making an impact in terms of early readiness and the practical ability of university youths to link their technological skills to future careers in communications sciences and IT.
She explained that summer camps are held annually for three months (July, August, and September) on the latest disciplines required in the labour market, such as information security, digital arts, data science, AI, software and other disciplines that are in demand.
This comes within the framework of the ITI’s plan to prepare young Egyptian cadres with digital skills capable of competing locally and internationally as per the Ministry of Communications and Information Technology’s Digital Egypt strategy, which seeks to enhance the digital skills of youths.
