This is the fifth Huawei ICT competition, including both a Network Track and a Cloud Track and has attracted more than 100,000 students from over 1,600 colleges and universities in 61 countries.

 
 

The top 100 students have been trained during the boot camp at the University of Nairobi and Zetech University in HCIA (Huawei Certified Internet Associate) certifications in Routing and Switching, Security and Cloud in the process of preparing to compete in the four-hour national final lab exam on Wednesday for tech prizes and a trip to South Africa for the regional final.

Over the past 30 years, we have made many efforts to train ICT talent by sharing our knowledge and best practices. We team up with educational institutions, industry associations, and partners to build a platform to foster ICT talent," Ma Yue said.
