Huawei Romania extends career opportunities for telecommunications graduates in Romania, offering scholarships and internships, as a result of the collaboration with the Polytechnic University of Bucharest. The company consolidates the following stages of the educational partnership with UPB by signing a Memorandum of Understanding for 3 years.
Huawei aims to establish a stable ecosystem, through which to support the innovation, research and development activities of the university, offering ICT resources, job opportunities and internships.
“In addition to its presence on the local market, Huawei is actively involved in educating young people pursuing a career in the field through training and internship programs, such as Seeds for the Future or ICT Academy. These programs help students build a foundation in working with new technologies and gain access to innovations in the field. Through the partnership with Politehnica București, we take this commitment one step further and support the young generations in their evolution processes”, says George Zhang, CEO of Huawei Romania.
Through this partnership, Huawei will intensify its investments and efforts in the field of education in Romania. This collaboration will materialize by providing training, internship and career opportunities, as well as awarding innovation scholarships to eminent students, to bring new talents in telecommunications and IT in the next 3 years. Moreover, Huawei will sponsor UPB with devices, will provide university professors with the latest technology studies and analysis reports and career counseling for undergraduate students.
”We are at a time when technology can solve many of the problems facing humanity. By collaborating with Huawei we can provide students and graduates with high-performance technical resources that will shape their knowledge and give them the opportunity to explore the limits of what is possible. We thank Huawei Romania for encouraging the younger generations to become future professionals! The young talents will take the field of innovation one step further and will be able to respond, thus, to the global transformation”, said Prof.dr.ing. Tudor Prisecaru, President of the UPB Senate.
Annually, the faculties within the Polytechnic University of Bucharest count around 3500 graduates who then enter the labor market.
Although since 2019 there has been an increase on the Romanian market in terms of the percentage of ICT specialists, according to the DESI 2020 report, they represent a much lower proportion of the workforce than in the EU as a whole (2.2% compared to a EU average of 3.9). In contrast, our country has good results in terms of ICT graduates, ranking 5th among Member States, with 5.6% of all college graduates from this field.
The signing of this Memorandum will support the evolution of the young generations, essential for the development of Romania and the creation of a productive economic environment in the context of accelerated globalization.
