The Higher Education Commission (HEC) has nominated as many as 32 students from 27 universities across Pakistan to study in China.

The announcement was made in the closing ceremony for ‘The Seeds for Future Programme 2020’ which is attended by Pakistan Ambassador to China, Moin-ul-Haque, Executive Director HEC, Dr Fateh Marri, Deputy CEO Huawei Pakistan Ma Libing and the 32 students.

This is the first time in six year that the progamme was moved online due to COVID-19, unlike past years when a whole batch could travel to China for the study trip.

The 32 were selected from a pool of 1,173 applicants. The aim of the programme, which has been active in over 126 countries & regions since its inception in Thailand, is to nurture upcoming STEM talent from around the world. As a global ICT market leader, Huawei has taken it upon itself to promote local ICT industries as part of development in their operational regions.

The students already had received a technical training from Huawei and Industry ICT experts in a week long learning progamme from 21st to 25th, September 2020.

Students were required to finish a number of compulsory courses and get a minimum of 60 marks on the test at the end of the course. Out of the 32 students, 26 successfully passed the course and got the graduation certificate.

The top two students, Muhammad Hamza from Barani Institute of Management & Sciences and Muhammad Shahzeb Khan from BUITEMS, Quetta secured a sponsored trip to China in 2021 with perfect scores.

The top ten students also received other awards, like Huawei Free Buds, Huawei Pad and Huawei Nova 7i mobile phone.

Speaking on this occasion, Dr Fateh Marri Executive Director HEC said, “I congratulate the students who have secured distinctions in these courses, from over a thousand students, you are the few who have been selected to be a part of this programme. I’m thankful to Huawei and their very strong collaboration with the Higher Education Commission (HEC) and universities across Pakistan.”

Meanwhile, Pakistan Ambassador to China stated, “We are going through an era of digitalisation with technologies like 5G, AI, Cloud Computing, and Big Data that are poised to bring profound transformation to our lives. I would like to thank Huawei for enabling the technology that brought all these students together on one platform to conduct these courses, despite difficult times.”
