The program is also the first cooperation activity between Samsung Group in Vietnam and the National Innovation Center to realize the goal of training 50,000 semiconductor engineers by 2030 for Vietnam.

In the SIC 2023-2024 academic program at NIC Hoa Lac this year, Samsung Vietnam will coordinate with NIC to organize two classes on Artificial Intelligence (AI), two classes on the Internet of Things (IoT) and two classes on Big Data for about 200 students from a number of member universities of Hanoi National University and FPT University.

The courses are expected to take place from May 2024 to August 2024 at NIC Hoa Lac premises.

Students who have good academic performance to meet the requirements of the program will receive a certificate of completion of the Samsung Innovation Campus course, as well as have the opportunity to participate in many other activities of the project such as Innovation Tech Challenge - a competition within the framework of the project to create a playground to help students apply the knowledge and skills learned in the program into practice.

In particular, students participating in the SIC program at NIC Hoa Lac are eligible for a free Korean language training course. In addition, students also have the opportunity to meet engineers working at Samsung's Research and Development Center to gain more career guidance related to the IT field in the future. Students with good academic performance in the program will have the opportunity to intern and work at Samsung's Research and Development Center in Vietnam.

Speaking at the ceremony, General Director Choi Joo Ho of Samsung Vietnam Complex said that the current environment is bringing great opportunities for Vietnamese young people. The Government’s support and cooperation between businesses and training institutions are needed to help Vietnamese youth develop into technological talents and maximize their abilities.
