The program will facilitate advanced learning for its employees at Samsung R&D Institute (SRI) in Noida
Samsung India signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with engineering institute BITS Pilani to facilitate advanced learning for its employees at Samsung R&D Institute (SRI) in Noida. The programme will be fully sponsored by Samsung.
The program 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, Samsung employees can pursue MTech in Software Systems to further upgrade their skills. The course consists of three semesters of theory work and one semester of dissertation.
The curriculum of the course has been decided 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.
