The ICT Competition will help enhance the quality of future ICT professionals in Pakistan, along with increasing national ICT competitiveness and supporting local students across Pakistan.

In 2018, the 3rd ICT competition aims to motivate more students into registering for the competition and elevate their ICT talent. Huawei is focusing on holding awareness seminars, workshops and preliminary rounds of this year’s competition at Pakistan’s 14 running HAINAs starting from this month. Huawei is also visiting universities for road shows.

The roadshows play an imperative role. They help to attract more students to participate in the Huawei ICT Competition, which will also bring more of them to take Huawei Certification exam. These also promote a deepened cooperation and partnership between Huawei and its partners like HALPs and Huawei ICT Academies.

Till now more than 10,000 students from reputable universities have registered. 5,000+ students will take the preliminary test, out of which 500 students will appear for the e-learning test. The top 100 students will take the lab test. The most competitive 6 students will be selected for the international round which will be held in Huawei headquarters in Shenzhen, China.
