Samsung digital academy at IIT Kharagpur 

NEW DELHI: IIT-Kharagpur (IIT-KGP) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Samsung India to set up a digital academy within its campus which planned to train over 100 students in the next three years.

The institute’s Computer Science and Engineering department would host the Samsung Innovation Lab, where students will be trained on the Internet of Things (IoT) through Tizen-based operating systems, commonly used by the company for its mobile phones and home appliances.

IoT is a network of computing devices embedded in objects of everyday use for storage and exchange of information. The training would help students acquire industry-relevant skills and become job ready.

Samsung has set up the lab to bridge the digital divide in the country by imparting skills to students on cutting-edge technology, the statement added.

IIT-KGP Director Partha Pratim Chakrabarti said, “The partnership will help our students in developing their skills on the emerging areas of IoT and Artificial Intelligence.”

The course would be taught over 14 weeks through classroom lectures, assignments, lab room sessions, self-study and mini projects.
