IIT Kharagpur signs MoU with Samsung for digital academy

IIT Kharagpur

IIT-Kharagpur has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Samsung India for the setting up of a digital academy on the institute’s campus.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering in the institute would host the Samsung Innovation Lab and train students on the Internet of Things (IoT) through Tizen-based operating systems, commonly used by the company for its mobile phones and home appliances.

IoT is a network of computing devices embedded in objects of everyday use for storage and exchange of information.

An IIT-Kharagpur statement said that the training would help students acquire industry-relevant skills and “become job ready”.

It said, the academy was a part of the company’s corporate social initiative that aims at bridging the digital divide in the country by imparting skills to students on cutting-edge technology.

It said, the academy has planned to train over 100 students in the next three years.
