Huawei has launched an ICT competition in Bangladesh for undergraduate students.
The Huawei ICT Competition is a global event that is happening in Bangladesh for the second time under the theme of connection, glory, and the future.
The Huawei team informed us that only undergraduate students from any discipline are eligible to enrol in this competition until November 17th of this year. Six winners from the Bangladesh round will get Huawei laptops, and the winners of the regional round will attend a global camp in China.
In this competition, the participants will be given some specific courses from Huawei’s online learning platform. The courses will be divided into three tracks, namely the network track, the cloud track, and the computing track. While registering for the competition, students need to select one topic.
Participants will be allowed to study, prepare, and participate in mock tests for the competition rounds. There will be three competition rounds: national, regional, and global. Before the national round, there will be a preliminary test as well.
The national round exam will be an online test on December 27. This test will have true or false, single-answer, and multiple-answer questions. Based on the performance, ten students will be selected from each track. In each track, the first prize will be the Mate Book B3-420 i5, the second prize will be the Mate Book B3-520 i3, the third prize will be the Huawei Watch GT3, and the fourth and fifth prizes will be the Huawei Free Buds 5. The sixth to tenth prize will be the Huawei Band 8 in the national competition round. So, all together, there will be 30 winners from the national round.
Huawei also stated that the winners of the national round will be joining the regional round, which will focus on theory and lab examinations. Students can work on online labs and show their capability of integrating what they have learned in the national and regional rounds. The regional round will be a team competition where each team will have three members and one instructor. The teams will be formed under the coordination of Huawei. Based on the performance of the regional round, students can join the physical camp in China. There, they can learn advanced knowledge of ICT, AI, cloud computing, network solutions, etc.
Pan Junfeng, President of Huawei South Asia and CEO of Huawei Bangladesh, shares, “There is an estimated shortage of 47 million tech talents by 2030. To overcome this challenge, Huawei always tries to initiate various programmes to enhance the ICT knowledge of our young generation. Bangladesh is riding the high tide of digitalization and heading towards building a smart nation. ICT-skilled young leaders are very important to realize this vision. As a responsible partner in the development of Bangladesh, Huawei always tries to contribute with impactful meaning. ‘Huawei ICT Competition 2023-2024’ is one of them. I hope it will bring great value to the students of Bangladesh.”
