Huawei Seeds of the Future Program promoting Tech4Good for UWI and UTECH Students

“We also welcome students from different faculty or majors to join, allowing them to understand technology and digitalization within a cross-discipline context.” – Huawei commenting on the 5th annual staging ‘Seeds of the Future’ programme.

Telecom Giants Huawei will once again be accommodating students from both the University of the West Indies and The University of Technology for its 5th annual staging ‘Seeds of the Future’ programme.

Huawei Jamaica has partnered with these universities since 2017, providing the opportunity for students to learn about Huawei’s international business culture at the company’s headquarters. This trip has continuously benefitted students as the course of the programme focuses on information communication technology (ICT), preparing them for their venture into the ICT industry.

Last year, due to unforeseen circumstances, the programme was forced to be held online and while the programme would normally take 2 weeks in China, the online programme had only lasted 5 days. Because the programme was held online, it gave more students the opportunity to participate.

This year, the same will apply as the company is determined to not allow distance to hinder this great learning opportunity for students. The programme is scheduled to start July 26th 2021 and end August 2nd 2021, lasting a total of 8 days this time around.

The company plans to accommodate 10 persons from the University of the West Indies. They are, however, still in the process of hosting interviews for The University of Technology students but should have their final selection by June 15th 2021.

“The programme will offer undergraduate students a rich experience involving technology courses (including 5G, cloud, AI, etc.), leadership course, Chinese culture experiences, tech exhibition hall live visit, participation in “Tech4Good” group project and culture exchanges with outstanding peers around the world.” The company explains.

Huawei Launched their programme in 2008 as their global CSR programme which has allowed them to partner with over 400 universities and as a result transform the lives of more than 30,000 students around the world.

Huawei plans to increase these numbers as they share their ICT expertise and experiences in the global business environment aiming to develop skilled, local ICT talent and bridge communication between countries and cultures.
