TWENTY aspiring electronics whizzes graduated recently from the Samsung Engineering Academy in Durban.
Samsung Africa Director Customer Service, Nithia Pillay said the graduates are part of the company’s ongoing mission to develop skilled electronics technicians and engineers across the continent by bridging the skills gap that currently exists.
The engineering academies across Africa have already seen thousands of students graduate with hands-on, practical skills at no cost, enabling them to move into jobs after they graduate.
“The academy’s mission is aligned with Samsung’s global mission ‘Enabling People’, which is aimed at helping people discover and develop their innate potential. Which is why we salute the learners who will help put Africa at the forefront of the 4th industrial revolution. They can uplift their communities, and in doing so, enrich the continent,” Pillay said.
The top performing students will now get a chance to intern at Samsung Electronics or its service partners and thereafter work as independent service technicians or employees within their respective regions.
