On Monday 23 June the MCAST Institute of Information and Communication Technology acknowledged industry partners that donated networking equipment to the Institute.

The donations consisted of networking equipment which will enable students to become familiar with the latest technologies used to deliver Internet service in homes as well as manage IT infrastructures found in large companies.

Mr Conrad Vassallo, Acting Director of the Institute of Information and Communication Technology thanked industry for their donations and stated “Students now have the opportunity to work on the actual networking equipment rather than just virtually.
