Top seven students from Artificial Intelligence course at Samsung Innovation Campus Nepal were invited for a mentorship program in India.

Samsung inaugurated its global CSR program, Samsung Innovation Campus, at Pulchowk Engineering Campus, Tribhuvan University Institute of Engineering on December 14, 2022. Youth in Nepal are undergoing training in in-demand tech skills, including Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Big Data, and Coding & Programming. The curriculum challenges students to present projects with social significance, incorporating the learned technologies.

The program includes soft skills training to enhance employability, translating knowledge into practical solutions, and fostering problem-solving capabilities for innovative thinking.

In 2023, the program has certified 63 students in Coding & Programming and 28 students in AI, with the current top 7 students excelling in the AI course.

Given the absence of Samsung Centers in Nepal, the top 7 students and 1 mentor of AI batch were selected to visit Samsung Centers in India. They were offered invaluable exposure to the Samsung environment and to showcase the innovative work undertaken at Samsung, particularly in the realms of SDD & SRI, emphasizing its contribution to society’s greater good through technological development.

Saurav Adhikari, Kailash Pantha, Prakriti Timalsena, Sandesh Thapa, Samikshya Chapagain, Suraj Pathak and Prayag Man Mane were invited to India with Prof. Arun K. Timalsina for a mentorship program where they got to engage with JB Park, MD & CEO, Samsung SWA, KY Roo, Head of SRI-Noida, Shane Cho, MD, SRI-Delhi and KD Park, MD, Samsung Design Delhi.

Samikshya Chapagain, a student of AI at Samsung Innovation Campus, Nepal, seemed overwhelmed with joy of having so many new experiences in such a short span.

Driven by her passion for AI, Samikshya’s mission after completing Samsung Innovation Camous is to instill AI technologies in regular tasks which require immense human effort. She wants to improve the working conditions around her home. Her confidence and resilience at Samsung Innovation Campus has empowered her to dream of being an entrepreneur one day. “My goal is to excel in the field of AI and build solutions that create a better world for all. I am actually very inspired to see what Samsung has done with Galaxy AI and meeting all those people who are behind these innovations was really fascinating and inspiring.”

Samsung Innovation students expressed fascination with technological innovation and appreciate Samsung’s commitments to progress in AI, recognizing its potential to change the world.

Another student from the batch of seven, Prayag was excited that a new journey will begin once they are back in Nepal with all the learnings.

“I am so glad that I made it to the top seven and was included in this cohort. The learnings I got from the senior leadership at Samsung will stay with me for life. I feel really motivated and inspired. Being awestruck with all products is one thing but the knowing how much effort goes into creating them has helped me understand the value of constant hardwork and dedication. My AI journey begins here,” he said.

Aspirations of students visiting India included working in technology companies where they can contribute positively with AI and other emerging technologies.
