31 SRI-B Engineers Graduate with M.Tech. Degrees from IIIT-B, Exemplify Learning at Work
Thirty one engineers from Samsung Research and Development Institute – Bangalore (SRI-B) successfully completed their M.Tech course from the International Institute of Information Technology – Bangalore (IIIT-B). This course is conducted by IIIT-B professors at the SRI-B campus in Bangalore, allowing employees to attend classes alongside their work.
These employees go through a rigorous entrance examination and an internal selection process to get a seat for the M.Tech. program.
This is the third batch of SRI-B employees who have earned their master’s degree from this institute, after SRI-B partnered with IIIT-B for imparting M.Tech. with specialisation in Computer Science for its employees. This program is part of the R&D Centre’s continuous learning initiative, which helps in fulfilling the aspirations of many of its employees.
“Our employees have always displayed a strong desire to enhance their technical skills and we are delighted to play such an important role in helping them fulfill their M.Tech aspirations. We aim to continue offering our people more avenues to build their technical skills,” said Dr. Aloknath De, Chief Technology Officer, SRI-B.
SRI-B hires many engineers from top engineering colleges across the country and provides them the opportunity to work on cutting edge technology in areas such as AI, machine learning, IoT, natural language processing, biometrics and camera tech. In order to help these employees gain more skills to shape their career, SRI-B runs many training programs that are aimed at both young professionals as well as experienced personnel.
SRI-B was set up in 1996, a year after Samsung entered the Indian market, and has worked on several India centric innovations that are a part of Samsung products today. Many global innovations in Samsung’s flagship smartphones have also been developed in the R&D centre.
