To China we go! The Salalah College of Technology (SCT) community proudly congratulates MONTHER HASSAN SALEM MUSHEK and YOUSUF AHMED MOHAMMED SABAH AL RAWAS, BTech Networking students who made it to the top 6 out of more than 800 students across the sultanate of the recently concluded Huawei ICT National Competition Middle East 2018 held at Higher College of Technology in Muscat last November 7, 2018. Both will join the Team Oman which is composed of 6 students from the Sultanate to compete with the rest of the world!
Huawei as one of the leading global ICT solutions provider sponsored, launched and designed the said ICT competition in partnership with the Ministry of Manpower and Higher College of Technology (HCT). This aims to promote ICT industry technology certifications, builds a strong ICT ecosystem and mold competitive, innovative and creative ICT industry talents geared to be future leaders.
Five IT students from SCT registered for the competition last May, 2018. This was followed by a preliminary round on October 2, 2018. It was an online exam using the educational platform of Huawei accessed simultaneously by 800 students from various universities and colleges across the Sultanate. Two SCT students qualified on the said elimination and underwent for 2 days training at HCT from October 17-18, 2018 in preparation for the national finals on November 7, 2018. During the national competition, the top skilled participants will be selected to represent Team Oman to compete in the prestigious regional competition on November 22-27 in Shenzhen, China.
This big achievement received is a byproduct of the collaborative efforts most especially to Mr. Devarajan Veerasamy and Mr. Bernard Ugalde and the rest of the coaches Mr. Sunil Thomas and Mr. Yashir Ambula for their hardship and dedication in preparing and conducting rigid trainings to the participants.
Congratulations to everyone who in one way or another molded competitive and world class students! The journey of the team’s success was not a straight forward glory but full of struggles and challenges which have been surpassed with the strong leadership and guidance of Mr. Viji Paul, HOD-IT and Mr. Jonathan Peter Glycer Tambaoan, HOS-Networking and Internet and E-Security (NIES) section.
The SCT family wishes best of luck to the team. Fly high Salalah College of Technology!
