selected for the third and last round; four of them were from the College of
Science and Technology at the University of Human Development – Hundreds of

Looking at it from another angle: Six of
the nine winners are from the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, which means that only
two of them are from other universities in Kurdistan, the rest are all from UHD.
Bayad Aram Hassan, Mohammed Jumaa Sabir, Brwa Shirwan and Abdulrahman Mohammed
Abdullah are the winners from UHD. The first two winners take first place in the row in Computing Tract and the second two take second place in Cloud Track.
The third and final round of the
competition will be held in Manama, the capital city of Bahrain, in the coming
weeks for the winners of the second round from all the Middle East countries.

significant considering the reputation of Huawei in technology and telecommunication,
the payment, and all the other benefits.
