To Upskill Youth On Next-Gen Technologies ‘Innovation Campus’ Program Is Launched By Samsung

Earlier in the month, the Electronics Sector Skill Council of India (ESSCI) and Samsung India signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to provide young people in India with access to training in emerging technologies. In light of the launch of the government’s initiative ‘Powering Digital India,’ Samsung has announced that its corporate social responsibility program, ‘Samsung Innovation Campus,’ will reaffirm the company’s dedication to working together with the government’s mission to empower Indian youth. 

As a part of the government’s ‘Skill India’ initiative, the program will educate and train over 3,000 unemployed young adults (those aged 18 to 25) in cutting-edge fields like the Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and Coding & Programming. 

Samsung SWA’s CEO, Ken Kang, and ESSCI’s COO, Dr. Abhilasha Gaur, signed the MoU.

Skilling should not be just about equipping the youth with employable skills but should act as gateways to employability and employment—as their Passports to Prosperity. The more employment-oriented skilling is, the more aspirational it will be for the students and young Indians. It is the vision of PM Narendra Modi that Digital Opportunities should be equitably available to each and every Indian and efforts should be taken up not just with premier educational institutions but also with universities and institutes in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities,” said the Minister of State Rajeev Chandrasekhar for Skill Development & Entrepreneurship & Electronics and IT.

Students who enroll will receive job placement assistance and instruction in soft skills that will increase their marketability to potential employers. ESSCI’s training and educational partners in India will also play a role in organizing them. 

The Artificial Intelligence course requires 270 hours of study time, 80 of which are spent on projects; the Internet of Things course requires 160 hours of study time, and the Big Data course requires 80 hours of study time; and each of these courses requires 80 hours of project work. 

Those who sign up for the Coding & Programming track will take part in a four-day hackathon and receive 80 hours of instruction. 

India’s government has, in the past, undertaken a number of concerted efforts to make the country a global talent pool by emphasizing the development of skills and the exploitation of possibilities. “There is no deficit of talent in the country but an increased demand for talented and skilled Indians across the globe,” said Chandrasekhar.
