Prof. Dr. Md. Al Mamun, Head of CSE Department, RUET, shares, “We are overwhelmed to have witnessed the spontaneous participation of students from across the nation. Their enthusiasm has surpassed our expectations, and the ideas they have entered with are full of possibilities. Youth are the future of the country, and it is our responsibility to properly nurture their talent and guide them in the right direction. RUET has always prioritized youth development and will continue to do so with similar initiatives with the support of companies like Huawei, who also share the same responsibility.”
Yuying Karl, Head of Public Affairs and Communications Department, Huawei Bangladesh, said, “Huawei believes in youth’s talent as they are the architecture of the better tomorrow. Hence, we have invested ourselves in developing the youth in the countries we operate. Bangladeshi youths, on numerous occasions, demonstrated their potential with innovative ideas and indomitable courage. Huawei’s vision is to build a fully connected, intelligent world, and youth can play an instrumental role in achieving this vision. Hence, we always strive to be a part of different programs that support the youth to gather knowledge and develop wisdom. This is why we have decided to be a part of RUET CSE FEST 2K22 as the technology partner. We hope that with our continuous partnerships and efforts, Huawei will be able to aid in the journey of transformation from Digital Bangladesh to Smart Bangladesh.”
