Greetings to you all from the Uganda Institute of  Information and Communications Technology(UICT) family. It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to UICT virtual exhibition platform of the 13th NCHE Annual Exhibition. 

UICT is a public tertiary institution established by the Statutory Instrument under the Universities and other Tertiary Institutions Act specializing in skills-based and middle-level ICT training and skills development.

UICT is the Government ICT training wing of the Government under the supervision of the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance and is managed and operated by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC).

As you all know, the Government and country have embraced the utilization of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTS) to improve service delivery to the citizens and also for social and economic development. This led to embarking on a digital transformation journey which is enshrined in Vision 2040, the Third National Development Plan (NDP III).

Two specific programmes have been designed, specifically Digital Transformation and Human Capital Development Programmes. The journey of digital transformation is also enshrined in the Digital Uganda Vision (DUV), Uganda’s National 4IR Strategy, the ICT Ministry Strategic Plan, the UCC Strategic Plan (2020/21 – 2024/25), and the UICT Masterplan.

In light of the above, the MoICT & NG is driving the digital transformation journey and amongst others pursuing the implementation and use of 4IR Technologies such as 5G, AI, Distributed Ledgar Technology (DLT), Cyber Security, Internet of Things, Cloud Computing as well as Data Science & Big Data to change people’s lives, service delivery and the future of business.

To facilitate the implementation of the digital transformation journey, the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance identified talent cultivation as a key enabler for the success of the adoption of ICT and Emerging Technologies. Being the Government middle-level skills development and delivery institute, UICT has been tasked to spearhead the digital talent cultivation programme on behalf of the MoICT & NG.

Thank you for taking an interest in us and I kindly urge you to navigate UICT virtually on this platform but also physically when you get time to visit us. I am Dr. Fredrick Edward Kitoogo, the Principal of Uganda Institute of ICT.
