The equipment was handed over to Dr Erold Naomab, NUST Vice-Chancellor, by Fabian Tait, the Managing Director of Namclear. The contribution aims to improve education by bridging the gap between NUST accomplishments and industry needs. “Namclear relies heavily on technology, both software and hardware, and it is part of the company’s strategy to stay advanced in terms of hardware and technology,” said Tait.
The estimated value of the donation is N$566 300. It is expected that new courses such as Clout Networking, High Performance Computing, System Virtualisation, Data Center Management, and Software Defined Networking both under-graduate and honours level will stand to benefit from the given equipment in terms of practical exposure. “Technology interfaces with society and in doing so, we want to make sure that the interface between technology and society is done in an ethical and useful manner. To do the interface, we must bring education skills and competent development into play,” Dr Naomab remarked.
