The Faculty of Engineering at the University of Kufa held a symposium entitled “The Next Generation of Wireless Communications”
The symposium aimed to introduce the concept of scientific and technical perspectives on the form of communications and information services coming in Iraq, the region and the world.
The symposium included lectures of each of Asst. Prof. Dr. Haidar Rafi Karim from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Kufa, Prof. Dr. Saad Saffah Hassoun from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Babylon, Mr. Sajjad Mohammed Abdul Hamza the Technical Director of Asiacell Telecommunications/Middle Euphrates Branch, Mr. Mithaq Talib Jabbar the Director of the Media and Communications Commission/Karbala Office, Dr. Abdul Saheb Al-Bahadli the Directorate of Najaf Communications and Informatics, and Eng. Haidar Abdul Hassan Hadi from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Kufa. These lectures were on the need to update the curricula towards the labor market and in the disciplines of cybersecurity, business engineering and professional certificates in the field of networks and project management.
The symposium concluded with several points:
1-The importance of paying attention to the technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution that combine the Internet, artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotic, the third generation of the web, quantum computing, genetic engineering, and others, because of the importance of these technologies in shaping the future image of the industry and the services it requires from the telecommunications sector.
2-The need to unify efforts between the public and private sectors and the need for coordination and joint cooperation to achieve the best services required by the transition to the fifth generation.
3-The need to invest the energies of academics in finding solutions to technical problems and the expertise of the public sector in directing scientific curricula towards the need of the market. And the importance of taking care of the transition to e-governance and completing the infrastructure towards automation and digitization of information and services.
4-The importance of finding legal and regulatory formulas for the new revolutionary technologies that the world is witnessing, such as the Internet via satellite (Starlink), which may pose a security threat.
5-The need to update the curricula towards the labor market and in the disciplines of cybersecurity, business engineering and professional certificates in the field of networks and project management.
6-Communication systems are everywhere, and even storing information on memory sticks and routing information through processors has become dependent on coding techniques and other basic communication system principles.
