In 2014, 16 students from public and private universities were selected to participate in the pilot edition of the Seeds for the Future Programme.

Speaking on the learning from the programme, 22 year old Malaysia University of Technology student Fateen Nazwa binti Yusof, who participated the 2014 “Seeds for the Future” programme, said: “This programme not only exposed me to the latest technologies at Huawei but also prepared me for the challenges I might face in real work situations. It is a side of learning we don’t experience in University. I also learnt life skills such as adaptability, patience and confidence during the programme. Nowadays, most employers look for more than just academic excellence. They want their employees to have the right attitude as well. I am thankful to Huawei for giving us the opportunity to discover a different side of the technology industry!”
