Samsung Electronics Vietnam has rolled out a technology-based education program called Samsung Innovation Campus (SIC) 2022-23 in central Vietnam for the very first time, aiming to help young people enhance their employment aspects and acquire practical knowledge in technology.
The company, under the South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics, signed a memorandum of understanding with Junior Achievement Vietnam and Duy Tan University in Da Nang, central Vietnam to launch the program on Tuesday.
SIC will help young people learn about key technologies.
The program consists of three courses for young people aged between 14 and 24 to improve their technology capabilities, including Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data, and Coding and Programming.
Speaking at the signing ceremony, Choi Joo Ho, CEO at Samsung Vietnam, reiterated Samsung’s commitment to accompanying and advancing further with Vietnam, as well as becoming one of the top favorite businesses in Vietnam.
He added that Samsung had developed its R&D center in Hanoi, aimed at making Vietnam a global strategic base rather than the largest manufacturing base for Samsung.
“Nurturing talents in technology is key to every country’s further development nowadays. We want to support young people in learning key technologies such as AI, IoT, Big Data, and coding,” the CEO said.
Samsung began operating SIC in 33 countries, including Vietnam, in 2019.
Up to now, SIC has attracted the participation of some 6,000 lecturers and students in the country.
Addressing the signing ceremony, Le Trung Chinh, chairman of the Da Nang People’s Committee, remarked that information and technology, as well as advanced technology have become a driving force of the municipal economic growth.
The Da Nang administration also attaches great importance to investment attraction programs and is committed to taking the lead in offering a favorable business climate to South Korean investors.
Chinh expressed his hope that Samsung Electronics will hold more comprehensive working sessions with the city to mull over projects bringing robust growth to both sides.
