Carried out under the Samsung Innovation Campus (SIC) initiative, students and teachers will be provided with adequate facilities, kits, and equipment for skilling in these emerging technologies. The candidates will be trained as per the SIC module to develop industry-capable skills. A multidisciplinary approach will be adopted where students will be exposed to practical problems in the field of agriculture, healthcare, manufacturing, water, and energy management, a company statement said.

Participating candidates will undergo assessment during and after completion of the course. At the final stage, they will have to prepare a project and successful candidates will be given completion certificates.
“The launch of the “Samsung Innovation Campus” program levels the playing field, providing equal access to the latest technology and real-world knowledge. Through this partnership, our aim is to unleash the transformative power of digitalization, empowering students from remote areas with opportunities of the future and equip them with the right technology skills needed for success,” said CN Ashwath Narayan, minister of skill development, entrepreneurship and livelihood of Karnataka.
