Students who complete the course and meet the graduation criteria will be granted a training program certificate from Huawei.
The four most excellent students will be then invited to visit Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, and participate in the “Seeds for the Future 2023” Conference in Shanghai from September 16 to September 19.
