About Huawei South Africa
As a leading international communications giant, Huawei has created a strong presence in South Africa and is working with the Broadband Development Commission for Sustainable Development to pioneer connectivity opportunities for all. In collaboration with Rain, Huawei recently launched Africa’s first standalone 5G network in South Africa.
The company has provided deserving students with bursaries to study Computer Science and Information Technology (IT). These fields have a skills deficit in South Africa, and Huawei wants to do its part to correct it. Additionally, Huawei is seeking Engineering, Finance, and IT graduates to participate in its graduate programme.
