In addition, it will also be hiring from streams such as Mathematics & Computing and Software Engineering.
“Strengthening their focus on innovation and cutting-edge technology, Samsung’s R&D centres aim to hire new talent from India’s top engineering institutes who will work on breakthrough innovations, technologies, products and designs, including India-centric innovations, that enrich people’s lives. This will further our vision of Powering Digital India,” said Sameer Wadhawan, Head, Human Resources, Samsung India.
This hiring season, Samsung R&D centres will hire around 200 engineers from top IITs such as IIT Madras, IIT Delhi, IIT Hyderabad, IIT Bombay, IIT Roorkee, IIT Kharagpur, IIT Kanpur, IIT Guwahati and IIT BHU, among others. They have also offered over 400 Pre Placement Offers (PPOs) to students at the IITs and other top institutions.
Samsung research centres in India have filed over 7,500 patents in areas such as multi-camera solutions, televisions, digital applications, 5G, 6G and ultra-wideband wireless communications protocol. Many of these patents have been commercialized in Samsung flagship Galaxy smartphones, smartwatches, network equipment and digital applications, among others.
Over the years, Samsung R&D centres in India have built a strong culture of patent filing. At Samsung R&D Institute, Bangalore, for instance, a significant number of patent filers are first-time inventors in emerging domains such as 5G, AI, ML, IoT, camera & vision technologies. With this the R&D centre has emerged as the number one patent filer in India for inventions made in India and first filed in India and also won the National IP Award 2021 & 2022.
