IMG 9031

Henley Business School's MSc Business and Management students performed exceptionally well in the Business and Management Project MM160 course. A group of five students, supervised by Dr Irina Heim, - Tom Plater, Carly Rose, Quasirat Tarfi, Zichen Zhao and Jiageng Deng - took part in the research project led by Pallavi Malhotra, Director for Huawei Talent Alliance, Western Europe.

The group successfully created an interactive introduction to Artificial Intelligence course and tutorial plan for learners aged 11 to 14-years-old to use in schools across the UK, as well as a CPD programme for schoolteachers. The group carried out research in several schools across Berkshire, completing a survey with 120 pupils and teachers before producing the end-product, which is to be launched in the UK on Huawei’s ICT Academy website.

This project has been presented to Huawei Headquarters, winning special prize for their research project. As a winner, the group of students has been invited to present the project results at Huawei Connect Europe 2022 and DigitALL Night, events held at Palais des Congrès de Paris in France on 17 October 2022.

DigitALL Night is a vibrant Talent Flagship Event specifically created for University Students studying STEM or ICT topics, and young people in Europe interested in technology, digital life and work. Students will deliver a presentation about the course they developed, discussing digitalization and green technology with digital opinion leaders and ICT industry experts from across Europe. The presentation will be broadcast through Huawei’s social media channels.

We are very proud of this achievement by our students. The supervisory team thanks Professor Norbert Morawetz, PhD student Ahmed Alshammary and Dr Matteo Borghi, who shared their expertise in AI and teaching technology with students.
