Samsung India partners with BITS Pilani to upskill employees

March 21, 2018

On March 19, Samsung India – the wholly owned subsidiary of Korean parent Samsung Electronics Co Limited – signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with India’s premier engineering institute BITS Pilani to facilitate advanced learning for its employees at Samsung R&D Institute India-Noida (SRI-Noida). The programme will be fully sponsored by Samsung and is intended to offer employees an opportunity to synergise theory with practice on a sustained basis, and to enhance their academic qualification.
As part of the initiative, SRI-Noida employees can pursue M.Tech in Software Systems to further upgrade their skills. The course consists of three semesters of theory work and one semester of dissertation. The course curriculum has been designed in alignment with SRI-Noida’s focus on research and skill-development in niche areas such as Machine Learning, Cloud Computing, Data Mining, Data Structure & Algorithms Design and Artificial Intelligence.

The course will help strengthen the technical knowledge of employees while giving them a career development opportunity.

Commenting on the collaboration, Dr. Seounghoon Oh, managing director, Samsung R&D Institute India-Noida said, “As technology evolves, skill sets must evolve too, especially for a company like Samsung that is focused on the next level of innovations. This MoU is in line with our vision to develop futuristic skill-sets aligned to the requirements of the fast evolving mobile and consumer electronics sectors. With a deep understanding of the changing consumer behaviour and technological advancements, Samsung India is committed to support the Government’s ‘Make in India’ objective. Through these strategic partnerships, we aim to deliver the best training and skill development to our employees, and thereby accelerate our ‘Make for India’ initiative.”

Every year a batch of 35 employees from SRI-Noida will be sponsored for this 2-year M.Tech. programme. All classes will be conducted on the SRI-Noida campus.

“We are very excited about this partnership both in terms of upskilling employees of SRI-Noida and to develop a globally competitive talent pool. BITS Pilani’s Work Integrated Learning Programs (WILP) are designed to integrate academic content with the requirements of the workplace, and are conducted with the same level of rigor as the program offered on campus,” said Professor G Sundar, director, Off Campus Programmes & Industry Engagement, BITS Pilani.

SRI-Noida has an existing MOU with Delhi Technological University (DTU) for M.Tech. and PhD since 2011.

SRI-Noida was established in 2007 with the primary focus of mobile software development and testing. It is actively involved in developing localised and advanced solutions to suit market needs for South West Asia and also develop models for Middle East Asia, North America (USA and Canada), Europe & CIS regions. The centre possesses extensive and in-depth experience in major domains of R&D like Multimedia, Applications, Framework, System & Communication Protocol.

The R&D centre has developed several India specific innovations such as popular S-Bike Mode, Ultra Data Saving Mode, Social Camera, S Secure and S Power Planning. Many of these innovations have done well in global markets as well.

Headquartered in Suwon, South Korea, Samsung inspires the world and shapes the future with transformative ideas and technologies.
