To enrich their learning experience, students will have the chance to experience traditional and modern Chinese culture and also explore Huawei exhibition halls, campuses, and stores virtually to have a better view about Huawei's history and technological developments. Students also have an opportunity to compete for prizes in a global contest that pits their innovations against technological projects from their global peers. Ethan Sun, CEO of Huawei Bahrain, said: “We’re happy to provide this learning platform to the students who are interested in ICT field to build their digital talent skills and support them to become the future leaders that are capable of fulfilling the digital transformation journey of their countries.”
