Students will explore various areas of the business including cybersecurity, quantum computing and automation. And they’ll learn about the key skills you’ll need to be successful at Fujitsu as well as how to kick-start their career with Fujitsu graduate and apprenticeship programmes.

Throughout the programme, they’ll complete quizzes and activities to test and deepen their learning. They’ll also have the opportunity to put their questions to Fujitsu experts in live webinars.
