Studying ICT: The Benefits

Training in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays a crucial role in the development and growth of the Kenyan economy, this is why Embu College has been at the lead in providing ICT related courses. At Embu College School of ICT, we believe that by providing training in ICT skills, individuals can acquire the knowledge and expertise required to work in various ICT-related fields such as software development, cybersecurity, data analysis, network administration, and digital marketing. This, in turn, helps to lessen unemployment rates and contribute to the overall economic productivity of the country.
ICT training also equips individuals with the skills needed to embrace and leverage digital technologies, enabling the country to develop new sectors such as e-commerce, digital services, software development, and mobile applications. This diversification reduces the dependence on traditional industries and contributes to a more resilient and sustainable economy. It also equips individuals with the skills to develop innovative solutions, create new products and services, and establish technology-based businesses. ICT training has also nurtured technology-based entrepreneurs who in turn attract investments, and generate economic growth through the creation of innovative ICT products and services.
In addition to this, ICT skills training enable individuals and organizations to embrace technology to streamline processes, automate tasks, and improve overall productivity. For businesses, adopting ICT tools and practices can lead to improved efficiency in operations, better customer service, and cost savings. This increased productivity contributes to the overall competitiveness of Kenyan businesses in the global market.
Finally, training in ICT helps bridge the digital divide by providing individuals with the skills needed to access and utilize digital technologies. Improved access to ICT tools, Kenyans can participate in the digital economy, access online services, and engage in e-learning, telemedicine, e-government, and other digital initiatives. This promotes social inclusion, empowers individuals, and enhances overall societal development. Embu College School of ICT has also partnered with Cisco Ltd. to offer Cisco Certified Network Associate and Information Technology (IT) Essentials training. Our students leave the college as professionals in networking, computer repair, and maintenance.
