The sixth Huawei Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Competition Global Final 2021-2022 recently saw four universities from Malaysia emerge as the top winners.
The four universities are Multimedia University (MMU), Universiti Malaya (UM), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), and Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) and they emerged on top after facing off against more than 2,000 colleges and universities from more than 85 different nations.
The event, which had the theme “Connection, Glory, Future,” attracted participants from all over the world, including the Middle East, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. Malaysia has been actively competing in the Huawei ICT Competition ever since it began in the nation.
The competition, which this year was held in Shenzhen, China from 17 June to 25 June, was hosted by the Huawei ICT Academy and drew more than 150,000 pupils.
CEO of Huawei Malaysia, Michael Yuan stated that the company would continue to develop and support young Malaysian talent’s technological literacy and digital abilities.
With this competition, we aim to cultivate talents to drive the digital transformation agenda and build a sound digital talent ecosystem. While this promotes friendly rivalry, the Huawei ICT Competition is no ordinary competition. It also steers career pathways for the participants.
I believe the determination and dedication for innovation shown by the young generation of Malaysia will help accelerate the nation’s digital transformation agenda. They are the backbone of Malaysia’s future and have proven their abilities through the sixth Huawei ICT Competition Global Final 2021-2022.Huawei Malaysia, Chief Executive Officer, Michael Yuan
