Innovative programmes for the promotion of excellent Master’s students are being developed within the framework of the cooperation with HUAWEI Austria. Thanks to HUAWEI’s support, the University of Klagenfurt has now launched the new HUAWEI Technology Scholarships to encourage excellent Master’s students from the Faculty of Technical Sciences. We have also introduced the HUAWEI Best Performer Awards, which honour students who have achieved an outstanding academic performance. Together, these two programmes further enhance the attractiveness of the technical degree programmes in Klagenfurt.
The HUAWEI Technology Scholarships support outstanding Master’s students pursuing technical degrees. This allows four students to receive a full scholarship. The call for applications will be issued in the spring of 2023. Students will receive financial support in the academic year 2023/24 in recognition of their excellent academic performance.
The HUAWEI Best Performer Awards honour students who have demonstrated academic excellence. These awards will be presented during a formal ceremony in the autumn of 2023.
“The University of Klagenfurt offers a range of technical degree programmes with excellent conditions for studying and a faculty that is strong in research and enjoys international visibility. We are very pleased to welcome HUAWEI as a strong partner in 2023. The HUAWEI Technology Scholarships and the HUAWEI Best Performer Awards collectively support outstanding students in our technical degree programmes – a triple win situation”, according to the Vice-Rector of the University of Klagenfurt, Doris Hattenberger.
“Supporting our young people in their studies not only ensures that we have highly trained professionals in the information technology industry in the future – we also strongly encourage cooperation and exchange with the students. This brings fresh impulses to both sides, and that, in particular, is a source of great pleasure for us”, as Harvey Zhang, CEO of Huawei Austria states.
Further information on the two scholarship schemes will be available on the university’s website soon.
