"I have a bachelor’s in Electronics and IT, and currently, I’m studying for my master’s in Wireless Communication Systems which is one of the AAU master’s programmes available to bachelors of Electronics and IT. Because of my choice of studies, I was invited to China for two weeks on Huawei’s training programme “Seeds for the Future”. Together with other students from Aalborg University and the Technical University of Denmark, I was taught Chinese at Beijing Language and Culture University (BLCU) and we had technological presentations at Huawei’s head office in Shenzhen. In Beijing, we were greeted by a huge welcome ceremony by among others one of Huawei’s Senior Vice Presidents as well as ambassadors from the students’ countries of origin, incl. the Danish. We also saw some of the great and famous sights of Beijing. At Huawei’s head office in Shenzhen, we were introduced to Huawei’s products and generally to 2G/3G/4G networks and fibre technology. Moreover, we heard about Huawei’s visions and work regarding the future 5G network.
It was an amazing trip – an interesting way to gain insight into Chinese culture as well as how engineers work in China. At the same time, we had the opportunity to speak to like-minded people from several other countries."

ABOUT SEEDS FOR THE FUTURE
Ten Danish talents from Aalborg University and DTU were chosen to take part in HUAWEI’s educational programme; Seeds for the Future. In July of 2015, the ten students will travelled for two weeks to Beijing and Shenzhen in China. Here, they learned about Chinese language and culture as well as Chinese corporate culture, and they received training in state-of-the-art trends within telecommunications at HUAWEI’s training centre.
Prior to the trip, the students were equipped with the new HUAWEI P8 with a very good camera and features such as Directors Cut and light painting. This way, the students were able to take great pictures and videos during the trip which you can see on Instagram and YouTube; #seedsforthefuturedk.
“Seeds for the Future” is a five-year cooperation agreement commenced in 2014 between Aalborg University, DTU and HUAWEI, sending ten students on an educational expedition to China each of the five years. The purpose is for Danish students to receive additional training within telecommunications, ensuring excellent graduates for the future.
