Macao’s budding scientists will get the chance to prove their worth in the Huawei ICT Competition 2022-2023 Macao SAR which kicks off next month.
Registration has opened and the deadline is 1 October. All university students and secondary school students studying in Macao are welcome to participate in the competition, which is organised by Huawei (Macao Branch), The Association for Promotion of Science and Technology of Macau, and the Macau Productivity and Technology Transfer Centre.
The contest is divided into three stages: the Macao regional competition between October and November, the Asia Pacific regional competition in February and the global final in May next year.
Both parts, “Network Track and Cloud Track”, will require written tests and experiments.
Huawei EBG Macao Branch General Manager Jackie Li Yingjie said that the contest themed Connection, Glory, Future aims to build an international competition and exchange platform for university students around the world, while enhancing their ICT knowledge level and practical ability, and cultivating their innovation and creation ability by using new technologies and platforms, thus aiming to contribute to the construction of global digitalisation.
Li noted that 475 university students joined the local contest last year, with more than 1,000 students in Macao receiving training from Huawei.
Li said that a new track has been added for middle school students this year, hoping that through the competition, they can approach and understand the ICT industry in advance, so as to enhance their practical skills and innovation awareness by providing references for students’ future study and career direction, while injecting new momentum into the industry, The Macau Post Daily reported.
