The project aims at training qualified Telecommunication Engineering professionals who are capable of filling in expert positions in the national Myanmar industry. Urgent need of skilled staff is a known fact resulting from rapid changes in the operational environment in Myanmar.
Understanding the needs of the Myanmar Telecommunication industry plays a key role in the project. Joint meetings and workshops are organised in the first phase of the project to ensure that the curriculum answers the high demands for knowledge and skills of companies currently being established in the country. As an essential part of programme quality management, regular feedback is collected from key stakeholders.
From the academic and educational point of view, the objective is to have Telecommunication degree programmes at Bachelor and Master’s levels. These are expected to lead to an enhanced research portfolio and the establishment of higher degrees programmes such as Doctoral programmes possible even within the duration of the project.
