Huawei, MoHE Collaborates to Harness the Potential of Local ICT Talents

Huawei has once again joined hands with the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) to bring its global talent development initiative “Seeds for the Future” to Malaysian youths that will be conducted entirely online. The program aims to cultivate more ICT professionals among university students, preparing them for a digitized world, and ultimately bridge the digital divide.

Through the “Seeds for the Future 2020” program, students will get an exclusive opportunity to upskill by leveraging on Huawei’s wealth of cutting-edge technological capabilities and resources, which can boost their future career prospects. They will also get to learn from Huawei’s global business operations, cross-cultural work practices, and Chinese culture.

This year, the five (5) day program will run from 21-25 September, and will consist of six (6) hours of compulsory courses, six (6) hours of live-streamed courses, and an hour of elective course. The compulsory courses will cover the areas of 5G, cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI) and Huawei Mobile Services (HMS). For their elective course, students can choose from a wide range of topics such as Internet of Things (IoT), digital trade, digital economy, or leadership and management. Upon completing the program, each student will receive an electronic certificate.

“Seeds for the Future” is Huawei’s global flagship corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, which seeks to develop more ICT talents worldwide and help bridge the digital talent gap. Since 2008, it has been successfully carried out in 125 countries and has benefitted over 4,800 students globally.

In Malaysia, Huawei has partnered with the MOHE to run the program since 2014 and has since helped 85 undergraduate students level up their ICT skills.
