Huawei empowers Bahraini Undergraduates

As part of its effort to show commitment to Bahrain’s Economic Vision 2030, as well as providing Bahraini undergraduates with valuable ICT training and other vocational skill sets, Huawei kick started the 2017 internship program in the Kingdom earlier this year, with the first batch finishing their three months internship program in June, while the second batch for the year is scheduled to start in September.

“As an active and committed member of the local community, we are pleased to continue the Huawei Internship Program, which aims to empower Bahraini undergraduates with on-the-job training that enables them to play an active role in the Kingdom’s digital transformation,” said Huawei Bahrain’s CEO, Feng Nan Paul. As a leading global ICT solutions provider, Huawei firmly believes in human capital and the importance of equipping the next generation with the necessary training and skills to become future leaders.

Students from Polytechnic and Ahlia University in Bahrain took part in the first batch of the Huawei Internship Program in 2017. For three month, they were trained under the domain of marketing, procurement, logistic as well as various ICT areas, including networking and system integration. They are assigned with the tasks that entail rational probing, independent initiative, advanced research skills, analytical skills, application development and others. The engaging and stimulating learning environment allowed them to adopt the practical skillsets for their future career and to be more competitive in the local market. Huawei Internship program helps to bridge the gap between what is learned from school and what is practiced in the workplace.

Students enrolled in the 2017 program have hailed it as a valuable experience.

Bassam Abdulredha, a Networking Student from Ahlia University said, “Through the internship program, I have learnt how technical projects are done in real life, and the complexities of managing such projects. I have realized that management skills are as important as technical skills, and I would recommend this program to any student who is willing to work hard and learn new skills though real life challenges in professional working environment.”
