A total of 10 students of the Cybersecurity programme at Community College of Qatar (CCQ) recently travelled to China to participate in Huawei’s annual ‘Seeds for the Future’ programme.

The two-week event was aimed at developing the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) skills of university students from across the globe through an immersive learning experience.

Led by Dr Mohamed al-Dorani, CCQ’s chair of the Information Technology (IT) Programme, and IT instructor Dr Abdullah al-Ghushami, the team visited Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, where they got up-close and personal with the experts of the telecom leader.

They had the chance to learn, develop, and enhance their ICT skills, as well as gain insights that can help them effectively contribute to the tech-driven future of the world. At Huawei’s cutting-edge training centre and labs, the students also engaged in hands-on learning activities and received up-to-date ICT solution demonstrations from the organisation’s experts.

CCQ president Dr Mohamed al-Naemi said, “CCQ is honoured to have Huawei among its community partners, a global leader in ICT and a vital player in shaping the future of the world. We can only imagine the possibilities that we can explore together and how they can translate into a more empowered, skilled, and tech-aware generation of IT professionals that continue to progress our nation towards our 2030 vision and beyond.”

“Huawei’s worldwide CSR initiative is a wonderful platform to bring together IT-minded academics and students from all around the world in a place where the latest cutting-edge technologies are being tested, developed and introduced to the market. Not only did our students broaden their horizons and gain new insights in the field, they also got to be a part of a border-transcending programme that promotes a greater understanding of and interest in the telecommunications sector,” Dr al-Dorani noted.

Huawei Qatar’s CEO Frank Fan commented,“We are proud of the CCQ students and their vision, which aligns with our own – to empower this region’s generation and develop the necessary talents and skills that will help them accelerate their country’s digital transformation. Huawei is committed to deploying the most advanced technologies that will help implement Qatar’s 2030 vision.”

Besides being an opportunity to enhance CCQ students’ IT skills and knowledge, the trip fostered knowledge-exchange and interaction with a group of like-minded yet culturally diverse students from 50 international universities around the world. The programme also provided a cultural experience for participants who were introduced to China’s rich traditions and way of life as they toured historic sites in Beijing such as the Great Wall of China and the Forbidden City, as well as through Chinese language lessons.

The students who took part in the programme are: Zenab Hussain Ahmad, Khulood Khaled Janahi, Najlaa Mubarak al-Kuwari, Aysha Mahanna al-Dossari, Dana Abdulrazaiq al-Rais, Aisha Shahine al-Kuwari, Salman Abdulwahed Mashhadi, Tamim Ali al-Kuwari, Sultan Khalifa al-Ibrahim, and Ali Ahmad Ali Ahmad.
