Samsung, India’s largest consumer electronics brand, has launched the second season of its national skilling programme – Samsung Innovation Campus – designed to upskill the youth in future-tech domains such as AI, IoT, Big Data, and Coding & Programming.

Samsung Innovation Campus aims to upskill youth aged 18-25 years in future technologies and enhance their employability.

A Memorandum of Understanding to train 3,500 students across India has been signed between Samsung and the Electronics Sector Skills Council of India (ESSCI), earlier this week.

This year the programme goes beyond just skilling to include more exciting opportunities for the students. The national toppers from each domain will receive a cash award of INR 1 Lakh along with an opportunity to visit Samsung facilities in Delhi/NCR.

Mr. JB Park, President and CEO, Samsung Southwest Asia, said, “Samsung has been a committed partner to the nation’s growth over the last 28 years of its presence in India.”

“Our vision has always been aligned with the Government of India’s objectives of skilling the youth and empowering them with professional growth opportunities”, Mr. JB Park added.

During the programme, participants will receive instructor-led blended classroom and online training through approved training and education partners of ESSCI across the country.

The curriculum structure varies depending on the chosen course track. For instance, participants opting for the AI course will immerse themselves in 270 hours of theoretical training and complete 80 hours of project work.

Meanwhile, those pursuing the IoT or Big Data courses will undergo 160 hours of training, supplemented by 80 hours of practical project work. Participants in the Coding & Programming course will engage in 80 hours of training and participate in a 3-day Hackathon event.

The programme will span eight educational institutions across four states. In the northern region, training centres will be established in Lucknow and Gorakhpur, besides two in Delhi NCR.

In the Southern region, covering states of Tamil Nadu and Karnataka, training centres will be located in Chennai and Sriperumbudur, besides two in Bengaluru.

The programme is scheduled to commence in April 2024, and the specially designed six-month course will end during October 2024. The course toppers will be announced in November 2024.
