UTAR is indeed grateful for this generous contribution in support of UTAR students. I believe today’s ceremony will be a good start for future UTAR graduates to work with Huawei Technologies. Some of our graduates are also currently working with Huawei Dubai, Puerto Rico and China. Such international exposure really enhances our graduates’ employability and capability to work in a global setting.”
He added, “I hope this financial assistance will motivate the recipients to excel further in your studies and encourage you to look forward to a good career with Huawei Technologies. Most importantly, you must aim to be responsible citizens as well as dedicated employees who contribute positively to the company, society and the nation.”

I’m glad to say that Huawei has offered job opportunities to 25 UTAR graduates in 2019 and this makes a total number of 180 alumni working in Huawei. UTAR alumni have left footprints of UTAR in many places as they work overseas.
Zhu Rui added, “I’m so happy we’ve selected five students to receive this scholarship. I’ve interviewed all of them during the application and I’m impressed by all of them due to their passion, attitude, innovative ideas and strong eagerness to acquire new knowledge. We would also offer job to them upon graduation. Today’s ceremony is not the end of our collaboration, we strongly hope for future opportunity to support UTAR in enhancing the IT infrastructure by using Huawei’s latest ICT networking technology. Let’s work together in the future to develop more talent and business collaboration with each other.”
