MTU STEM student wins €5,000 scholarship

A Cork student has been awarded with a €5,000 scholarship.

Uzoma Ogwudiegwu, from Clonakilty, a third-year Biomedical Engineering student at Munster Technological University, was awarded one of the highly competitive Huawei “Seeds for the Future” scholarships, at an award ceremony in the Royal College of Physicians.

Uzoma won the scholarship following a week-long programme involving shortlisted students from Ireland and The Netherlands. Throughout the week, the students engaged in lessons on subjects from AI to cloud computing, as well as visiting Huawei’s campuses online and taking part in other cultural experiences.

There were also guest lectures on digital transformation, sustainable technology, and strategic leadership delivered by Huawei senior engineers and industry thought leaders.

Commenting on her experience, Uzoma said:

I am so glad I was able to participate in the ‘Seeds for the Future’ programme which gave me valuable insight into topics on ICT and new communication technologies. A highlight of the competition for me was competing in the Huawei #tech4good programme and leading our team to the finals. I am so honoured to receive this scholarship which will be of enormous benefit as I pursue my STEM studies.”
