5th edition of Huawei ICT Competition opens

DUBAI, September 29, 2021

Huawei, a leading global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices, is running the 5th edition of its flagship annual ICT Competition across 10 countries in the Middle East. 
The competition aims to nurture and empower the future generation of local ICT talents to effectively contribute to the region’s national plans and visions. 
Following last year’s success, the Huawei Innovation Competition is scheduled to take place for the second consecutive year in parallel to the ICT Competition. The Huawei Innovation Competition empowers undergraduate students and their teachers to use innovative technologies – such as artificial intelligence (AI), cloud computing, and big data – to create valuable and meaningful applications for society. 
Huawei invites universities and colleges across the Middle East to participate in the Innovation Competition, with a total of ten teams to be selected for the regional final this year.  
The Huawei ICT Competition, held under the theme ‘Connectivity, Honour, Future’, will run from October to November, and is larger part of Huawei’s commitment towards nurturing the next generation of ICT leaders across the region. This year’s competition will provide training and competition tracks in advanced technologies such as intelligent applications, cloud computing and big data. 
The competition will welcome thousands of undergraduate students from across 10 countries in the Middle East, and will be held virtually in compliance with social distancing measures. Winners of the regional competitions will receive a certification, future learning opportunities, a $20,000 cash prize and more. 
Li Xiangyu (SpaceLee), Vice President of Huawei Middle East, said: “Nurturing and empowering regional ICT talents has been a continuous commitment at Huawei, and we are proud to play a pivotal role in developing promising young minds and contribute in the wider economic growth of the Middle East. By investing in young talents, we are creating an open, collaborative ecosystem and preparing the future generation of leaders who will be responsible for the success of the digital transformation journey in the region. We look forward to many more initiatives taking place in the Middle East and building a fully connected, intelligent world.” 
Last year, over 15,000 undergraduate students from across the region applied for the Middle East ICT Competition from 443 universities and colleges. The competition was supported by 20 ministries, various ambassadors and academic chancellors from some of the Middle East’s top-ranking universities.-- TradeArabia News Service
