We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for the Victoria University of Wellington and Huawei 2019 Seeds for the Future Programme.

6 May 2019

Huawei’s Seeds for the Future programme provides a vital link between classroom learning and the type of real world situations students will face once they enter the workforce. It aims to challenge and to inspire students who are considering a future in technology, and to provide an immersive experience of life at one of the world’s leading technology companies.

The Seeds for the Future programme selects students for an all-expenses trip to Huawei’s headquarters in Shenzhen, China, where they will be exposed to the very latest technological developments, get hands-on in Huawei’s laboratories, and learn directly from those people who are busy creating the next generation of consumer, enterprise, and network technology.

Successful candidates will also experience a week in Beijing to learn about Chinese history, culture, and language, and to gain an understanding of New Zealand’s largest trade partner.

Huawei covers in full the cost of recipients’ air travel, accommodation, travel insurance, entry visas and all meals.
