Samsung plans to hire over 300 engineers from IITs
Gurugram: Samsung India has decided to hire over 300 engineers from the Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) to strengthen its Research and Development (R&D) operations in the country.
The officials of the company three R&D centres located in Bengaluru, Delhi and Noida, will visit the IITs at Delhi, Kanpur, Mumbai, Chennai, Kharagpur, Guwahati, Varanasi and Roorkee starting December 1.
The R&D centres will also hire engineers from the newer IITs at Hyderabad, Dhanbad, Ropar, Indore, Gandhinagar, Patna, Bhubaneswar, Mandi and Jodhpur.
Sameer Wadhawan, Head, Human Resources, Samsung India, said, “”Our R&D centres are focusing on cutting edge technologies, developing innovations for the Indian market as well as for the globe. We will continue to add engineers for research and development in these areas and further our commitment to making a strong research base in India.”
Wadhawan added, “There’s a tactical shift that we have made to spot talent early and offer PPOs. This year, we had a slightly longer internship period so that students can spend more time in the company, giving them opportunity to interact with the leaders and managers. This helps us select bright talents amongst them.”
Apart from the IITs, Samsung will also be hiring from other top engineering colleges such as BITS Pilani, IIITs, NITs, Delhi Technological University, Manipal Institute of Technology and IISc Bangalore.
Earlier in the year, Samsung has offered over 200 Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) to students at the IITs.
