ADA students win "Seeds for the Future" program by Huawei
“Huawei”, China’s leading global ICT company in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation, Communication and High Technologies and the Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan selected five ADA University students- four from the School of IT and Engineering (SITE) and one from the School of Business- to participate in a two-week long work-study program. Titled "Seeds for the Future” the program offered undergraduate students an all paid opportunity to travel to China. During the first week, participants were Huawei’s guests in Beijing for an immersive introduction to Chinese language and culture. In week two, participants stayed in Shenzhen and worked with the Huawei team in its Global Headquarters, learning about Huawei’s international culture, strategy, and values, and receive technical training from some of the finest professionals in the industry.
SITE student Ziyaddin Sadigov noted that practicing calligraphy and visiting the famous Chinese attractions was one of the most memorable parts of week one, while in Shenzhen they got to learn about 3G, 4G, and upcoming 5G networks, as well as Cloud Technologies. His SITE colleague Sabir Babayev said it was an honor to be selected as a student from Azerbaijan to participate in the program which expanded their worldview and added a valuable educational background.
