New Delhi: Samsung on Monday announced the expansion of its industry-academia program to 70 engineering colleges in India to create a pool of talent for new-age R&D challenges.
The Samsung PRISM (Preparation and Motivation of Student Minds) program has so far been successful in motivating engineering students to file patents and publish technical papers in cutting-edge domains such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and IoT.
The program, which began in 2020, has trained over 4,500 engineering students and 1,000 professors working alongside engineers from Samsung R&D Institute, Bangalore, the company said.
So far, more than 300 teams have been recognized and rewarded for their exceptional work. SRI-B Center has filed more than 3,500 patents in India and more than 7,500 patents globally.
Srimanu Prasad Head Technical Strategy, SRI-B, said, “Working with Samsung, young students have gained hands-on experience for an R&D center’s live projects and professors are more practical.
The industry experience has come together. It is preparing students for industry and furthering our vision of empowering Digital India.”
As part of the programme, SRI-B collaborates with students and faculty in engineering colleges, allowing them research as well as development projects to be executed in four to six months.
