New Delhi: South Korean electronics major Samsung plans to hire over 1,000 engineers in India from IITs and other top engineering colleges, including BITS Pilani and NITs, in 2022.
In a statement, the tech giant said that young engineers, graduating in 2022, will be hired for new-age domains like artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, deep learning, networks, image processing, cloud, data analysis, on-device AI as well as camera technologies.
For its three R&D centres (Bengaluru, Noida and Delhi), Samsung will hire around 260 engineers from IIT campuses in Delhi, Kanpur, Mumbai, Madras, Guwahati, Kharagpur, BHU, Roorkie and other newer IITs. The rest of the hiring will be from other top engineering colleges such as BITS Pilani, IIITs and NITs, it added.
The company will hire students from multiple streams, including computer science, electronics and communications, electrical engineering, mathematics and computing, instrumentation and information technology, to support its efforts to build innovative solutions for India-specific challenges.
This year, Samsung had a slightly longer internship period so that students can spend more time in the company, allowing them to interact with the leaders and managers.
The company's R&D centres in India have a strong culture of patent filing. The centre in Bengaluru has filed over 7,500 patents globally, with over 3,500 patent filings in India so far
