TelOne Centre for Learning To Be Transformed Into A University
Fixed telecom giant, TelOne has set sight on transforming the TelOne Centre for Learning into a fully fledged university within the next few years.
The announcement was made by the Managing Director, Chipo Mutasa during the institute’s 2018 graduation ceremony yesterday.
“In trying to counter the evolving trends in the technology sector, TelOne has came up with a master plan for the TCFL to become a specialized Information Communication Technology University which we expect to start full roll out 2019 and an expected full completion by 2023.
“The development will see us growing our student enrollment from the current 1318 full time students to 6600. Already, work to put in place the skills and material resources as well as meeting all the ZIMCHE requirements has begun. We also look forward to leverage on our partnerships as well as the experiences from the current degree programme to achieve this goal,” said Mutasa.
The TelOne Centre for Learning is already offering hands-on and advanced scientific courses in Cyber Security, Network Security, Cloud Computing and Network Storage on top of its traditional Diploma in Telecommunications. The institute recently launched a four year Telecommunications Engineering degree programme in partnership with the National University of Science and Technology (NUST).
