Huawei collaborated with the ATN to select the top performing students to provide them the opportunity to experience life at the Huawei campus with around 60,000 employees based in Shenzhen, as well as to visit Huawei’s Research and Development labs, its Exhibition and Logistics Centres, and gain valuable work experience in a global business environment.
Jeremy Mitchell, director of corporate and public affairs at Huawei, said the ‘Seeds for the Future’ initiative helps develop talent in Australia and encourages participation in the international ICT community.
ATN executive director, Renee Hindmarsh said: “Huawei’s Seeds for the Future program is a fantastic opportunity for ATN students to interact with state-of-the art technology, get first-hand experience and learn vital multicultural business skills within the global ICT secto.
