In this year’s National Competition, participating teams were tested on their knowledge and skills in computer network configuration, security, and wireless networks.

At the end of the tournament, Regent’s Jonas Ababio, won the Grand Prize, a 2023 model Huawei Laptop and a mobile phone (Huawei NOVA 9 SE).  Yayra Adzaku won Second Best Prize and also the Best Female Student Prize at the competition.

“The Huawei competition provided us with a lot of benefits for our academic journey. I particularly enjoyed meeting and networking with different people in our field of study,” said Yayra Aku Adzadu.

The Acting Head of the Computing Department, and an instructor to the Regent team, Mr. Kwadwo Atta Opoku, had this to say: “This competition is a great avenue for our students to gain knowledge and it presents opportunities to students. Our students did very well in the competition, especially considering the number of institutions that participated in it. As an instructor, I have always advised my students to participate and take it seriously all the time.”

Some participating Universities in this year’s national-level competition included the University of Ghana, Ghana Technology University, All Nations University, KNUST, University of Development Studies, University of Mines and Technology, Ho Technical University, and University of Natural Sciences, among others.

Since the first edition in 2015, participation and interest in the Huawei ICT Competition have grown astronomically. This year’s Huawei ICT Competition attracted 150,000 students from over 2,000 universities and colleges across 85 countries and regions.

We congratulate the Regent team for their sterling performance in the competition and wish them the best of success as they proceed to the next stage of the competition.
