Students from Princess Sumaya University for Technology took top positions in the 7th edition of Huawei’s Seeds for the Future program, which is a leading corporate social responsibility event. The program is dedicated to students of ICT and STEM majors, popular with students from local universities.
The program also aims to help local ICT professionals bridge the gaps between theory and practice, promote knowledge exchange, increase interest in the ICT sector, and encourage participation in the digital society.
PSUT student Ahmed Fida was named Best Participant, while Muhammad Ghassan and Rashad Abdul Muti Abu Ras took the title of Best Team Leader. Muhammad Al-Qaisi, Nada Abu Kishk, Menen Hawari, and Esam Abdo occupied top places in the program.
PSUT’s Acting President, Prof. Wejdan Abu Elhaija, congratulated the winners, emphasizing the university's tireless efforts in participating in quality international competitions and programs, as this participation has a real impact on students' achievement, their acquisition of practical skills, as well as opening new horizons for them.
The Dean of King Hussein School of Computing Sciences, Dr. Ashraf Ahmad, pointed out the benefits of getting students involved at an early stage in solving modern industrial problems, as it prepares them to enter the labor market without the need for training periods, adding that the fruits of this policy could be seen in the success of all applicants to the program.
For his part, the contest supervisor, Dr. Ammar Odeh, stated that PSUT was keen on partnering with the industry sector to help provide future skills for students to ease their entry into the labor market, and that the program was an opportunity to build participants’ capabilities.
