Samsung launched its prestigious Samsung Innovation Campus program in 2019. It is part of the company’s global CSR vision of “Together for Tomorrow! Enabling People”. The program trains students and unemployed youth to be familiar with key technologies of the 4th Industrial Revolution, such as AI and IoT. The globally leading electronics brand says the knowledge acquired through the campaign nurtures students to be the next generation workforce. Besides, the program also offers soft skills training to promote their employability and ability to bring their knowledge to life. It also develops problem-solving capabilities in students that enable them to become innovative thinkers.
As part of the courses under the program, students will also undergo a practical project component. In this, students will need to present projects of social significance in which AI, Big Data, Coding & Programming, and IoT play a key role.
Samsung believes in using innovation to positively transform communities and create a better life for people through its CSR programs. The company says, “empowering youth through education is one of the best ways we can prepare our young people to boldly face the world of the future.”
