"As a graduate of the Polytechnic University and co-founder of a technologically innovative company, I could not help being part of this initiative aimed at the development of one of the most important economy sectors in Armenia. Within the framework of Ucom's CSR activities, we do our best to support the initiatives that have as their aim the formation of new generation of engineers, their professional development and career growth," said Hayk Yesayan, Co-founder and General Director at Ucom.
