The airwaves at BBS TV were buzzing with enthusiasm as the dynamic team from the Uganda Institute of Information and Communications Technology (UICT) took the stage. Led by Victoria Mirembe, the President of UICT’s TISA Club, the discussion revolved around the club’s mission and its profound agenda to empower students to take the lead in addressing societal challenges through innovation.
A Platform for Innovation
TISA, short for Technology and Innovation Students’ Association, is more than just a club; it’s a platform for fostering innovation and creativity among students at UICT. The club believes in the power of technology and innovation to transform societies, and its members are driven by a shared vision to be the driving force behind this transformation.
Empowering Students for Impact
One of the core objectives of the TISA Club is to empower students with the skills and knowledge needed to drive innovation. Through a variety of activities, workshops, and projects, TISA equips its members with the tools to not only understand technology but also to harness it for the greater good.
Taking the Lead in Solving Challenges
What sets TISA apart is its proactive approach to problem-solving. Instead of waiting for solutions to come from elsewhere, TISA members are encouraged to identify societal challenges and actively work on innovative solutions. The club provides them with a supportive environment where they can collaborate, experiment, and turn their ideas into reality.
Innovation in Action on BBS TV
The recent appearance on BBS TV was a testament to TISA’s commitment to innovation. During the live discussion, club members shared their experiences, projects, and insights into the world of technology and innovation. They emphasized the importance of students taking the lead in addressing real-world challenges.
Collaboration for Impact
TISA’s mission aligns with the broader goals of institutions like the Ministry of ICT & National Guidance (@MoICT_Ug), the Uganda Communications Commission (@UCC_Official), and the Innovation Hub Uganda (@InnovationHubUg). Collaboration with these key stakeholders ensures that the innovative solutions developed by TISA members have the potential to make a real impact on society.
As we look to the future, the TISA Club at UICT remains committed to its mission of empowering students to become drivers of innovation. With strong leadership, a focus on skills development, and a passion for solving real-world problems, TISA is poised to make a significant difference in Uganda’s technology and innovation landscape.
