These days, the representatives of the Union of Information Technology Enterprises (UITE) will visit India to participate at the World Congress on Information Technologies (WCIT 2018). To remind, the World Congress on Information Technologies 2019, the largest event on IT, will be held in Armenia, and the WCIT2018 event becomes more important in terms of preparations.
Karen Vardanyan, the UITE Executive director, mentions that the Union becomes a member of the World Information Technology and Services Alliance (WITSA), and will participate at the most important event on IT.
“The main goal of the Armenian delegation is to directly work with other countries’ delegates and invite them to Armenia. We must also work with the sponsors of WCIT, the main speakers who become expertise in different sectors (education, management, technology, security, and others). We must invite them to Armenia to participate at the World Congress on Information Technologies 2019”,- Karen Vardanyan stresses.
The Executive director of UITE informed, that within the frames of the WCIT2018 the Union will also sign an agreement regarding to which the Armenian “Armath” engineering laboratories establishment project will be implemented in the schools of India. About 300 laboratories will be established in Indian schools during the first stage of the pilot Project, which is more than those now operating in Armenia.
It is worth to mention that UITE has designed and started to implement the “Armath” engineering laboratories establishment in Armenian schools” project for some years. The aim of the Project is to foster the technical skills of the schoolchildren, to promote their professional orientation, to train professional workers with technical education that will meet the growing demand. The project is quite effective; it provides new quality technical education at schools. Surveys showed that 84% of the “Armath” graduates have been admitted to the universities, 82% of which - in natural sciences, IT and technical specialties.
The representatives of India got acquainted with the “Armath” engineering laboratories in Armenia and intended to invest the Project in their country.
