Madesoft Academy, a global tech education company, plans to train young Africans in industrial automation, Internet of Things (IoT), software development, and other areas of technology.
Business Head, Madesoft Academy Jasper Akpovir, made this known on Tuesday and stated that Africa faces a crippling deficit of engineering and tech skills, which is stifling economic growth and causing hardship for the continent’s growing population.

He noted that with high demands from recruiters seeking ICT experts, Africa can only be able to increase its economic growth through science, technology, and engineering.

Madesoft Academy, founded and operated by experts with over twenty years of hands-on experience in these fields, seeks to bridge the skills gap through a six-month hybrid programme to provide young individuals with the needed skills.
“We have created and perfected the best system for developing these young minds, so their journey at Madesoft Academy will follow a tried and tested method that produces the best results,” Akpovir said.

“Our industry-focused programs are developed and taught by industry experts with more than 20 years of hands-on experience, and they are delivered through a series of live classes, videos, quizzes, interactive activities, and projects. Our collaborative coursework prepares them for the type of work environment in which they will be placed.”

He added that students will be assigned to professionals to mentor them through a developmental plan that will enable them to learn. Students interested in applying for the new programmes are encouraged to visit the Madesoft Academy website.
