Each year Huawei recruits 50 STEM undergraduates from leading universities across the UK to participate in an all-expenses paid, four-week trip to China featuring cultural, technical and business training.
During the programme students will spend an initial period in Beijing where they will receive Mandarin training from one of the best universities in Beijing and learn about Chinese culture. There will also be group tours of cultural sites such as the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, the Great Wall of China and the 2008 Olympic Park. Visits will also be made to a number of Chinese and western tech companies operating in Beijing.
Students will then be flown to Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, where they will learn about Huawei’s international business culture and values and spend time learning about Huawei’s products and solutions. There will also be visits to Huawei’s F1 Exhibition Centre; Enterprise Exhibition Hall; Logistics Centre; R&D labs and one of Huawei’s state-of-the- art factory facilities. At Huawei HQ students will also receive technical training from some of the finest professionals in the industry.
Since 2011 we have provided over 280 UK undergraduates with the opportunity to learn about China and to experience working in Huawei’s dynamic global business HQ – an invaluable addition to any CV when looking for a job after graduation.
Watch the video from our Class of 2019 as they reflect on their experiences of the programme. Huawei will be accepting applications for the 2019 Seeds for the Future Programme before the closing date of 31st January 2020.
