Malawian-owned information and communication technology (ICT) solution provider Sparc Systems Limited has donated a computing saver to Chancellor College, a constituent college of the University of Malawi ( UNIMA).
Speaking after presenting the donation, Managing Director for Sparc Systems Limited Wisely Phiri said they felt oblidged to make the donation having realised the challenges the college had in keeping students projects.
“I was privileged to attend a symposium for the Social Science students last year where I saw the gap. I discovered that there is luck of continuity in students projects. Sometimes Lecturers were not aware that students were doing similar projects due to luck of proper storage system.
The second thing is about exposure of the projects. The students are doing very good projects which can be key towards solving some of the problems facing our society. These projects need to be put online for others to appreciate and the only way to do that is having a good storage system hence our donation,” said Phiri.
In his remarks, Deputy Head of Computer Science at Chancellor College Dr. Kondwani Munthali commended Sparc Systems Limited for the donation which he said will go a long way in improving the quality of projects done by the students.
“This is a very big and serious donation. As a college we would want to give our students the intra structure that they can experiment on and expose themselves. Receiving a saver for a computer scientist is a very big plus as far as the department is concerned. This is a saver that will be given to the students to explore and experiment on,” said Munthali.
