Huawei has selected third-year engineering students to participate in its “Seeds for the Future” program.

On Saturday, May 9, the 18 Canadian students will depart from Canada to participate in a two-week professional and cultural trip to China.

Seeds of the Future aims to help develop ICT talent in Canada, promote a greater understanding of the telecommunications sector and encourage participation in the international ICT community.

“The response from our university partners and students was overwhelming, and all 18 ‘Seeds for the Future’ participants promise to be key players in the future of Canada’s ICT sector,” says Sean Yang, President of Huawei Canada. “It is our hope this international experience will expose them to a global, cross-cultural business environment and help prepare these students for a bright future in technology.”

The trip itinerary includes a week of cultural training and visits to prominent historical sites in Beijing, including an introductory course at the Beijing Language and Cultural University and a trip to the Great Wall of China.

A one-week placement at Huawei headquarters in Shenzhen will follow, where students will receive first-hand learning opportunities with Huawei engineers and business leaders, visit Huawei’s laboratories and see live demonstrations of advanced communications technologies.

To date, Huawei has invested over $3 million in advanced communications research projects with universities across Canada.
