University of Manchester launches Msc programme in ICT4D

Views: 652

The University of Manchester is launching a new one-year MSc programme to address the training needs associated with recent massive expansion in Information and Communication Technologies for development (ICT4D) projects.

ICT4D projects include telecentres, ICT-enabled microenterprise, public service kiosks, e-Government initiatives, e-Health projects, and ICT-in-education in developing and transitional economies. Successful oversight of these projects requires 'ICT4D champions' who possess a combination of technical competencies (e.g. information systems skills) and contextual competencies (e.g. development skills). Such a combination is, as yet, rarely found. This has resulted in a high project failure rate, and a recognition of training need.
