Careers: A new “smart ICT for business” course launches this autumn.
Techies looking to boost their “smart ICT” skills and become a digital strategist or innovation manager might want to check out a new professional training course that will start this autumn.
The programme, which will lead to a formal certificate, is being organised by the Luxembourg Institute of Standardisation, Accreditation, Safety and Quality of Products and Services (ILNAS), a public body reporting to the economy ministry, and the University of Luxembourg.
It is the first year this programme will be offered. “We decided to put into place a university certificate, ‘Smart ICT for business innovation’, to support the economic development policy of the government on one side and on the other side, to help Luxembourgish ICT companies to find highly qualified personnel with a deep understanding and knowledge of standardisation, and also able to identify ongoing smart ICT developments,” Jean-Marie Reiff, director of ILNAS, said in a promotional video.
Classes will cover concepts including ICT governance, smart cities, green ICT, sensor networks, big data, digital trust and how to “implement ICT technical standardisation in the business strategy”, according to a course brochure. Coursework will be followed by an internship.
The training programme is intended for “professionally active ICT profiles with some experience”, a representative of ILNAS told Delano this week. Classes will be conducted “entirely in English” and courses “will be held on Thursday and Friday evenings and on Saturday, every two weeks from September to May.”
“The deadline to submit applications is on 31st of May 2015. The number of places is limited up to 20,” she added.
