The Project for Developing Technological Talents – Samsung Innovation Campus 2022 – 2023 was officially launched on September 21, 2022 to develop high-tech capabilities for the Vietnamese young generation who will lead the future success of Industry 4.0 in Vietnam. The program offers 3 Technology competency development courses for 14-24 year olds, including: Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and 1 Basic Programming Skills Course (Coding & Programming). Along with professional knowledge, the project also provides Career Skills content to supplement and enhance learners throughout the program. The project has been implemented at 33 schools in 12 provinces and cities across the country after 1 year, including secondary school, high school, college and university, bringing opportunities for training and technology development for more than 3,200 students and teachers nationwide. Specifically, more than 2,400 students have attended the Basic Programming Skills course, more than 200 students have participated in the Connected Things course, more than 300 students have participated in the Artificial Intelligence course and 50 students have been trained about Big Data.

Moreover, in order to increase sustainability when deployed, the Samsung Innovation Campus 2022-2023 project also organized training courses for more than 200 teachers, to support the improvement of professional and pedagogical capacity as well as supporting practical teaching ability. The Teacher Training Course is designed by leading experts of Samsung Group and research institutions - major universities across the country.

Sharing at the event, Nguyen Vinh Huy, a student of Duy Tan University - one of the participants in the SIC program, said: "As a student majoring in Big data & Machine Learning, I clearly understand that data it is the lifeblood of this era, all theories are just dry words if not applied in practice, let the data draw a story for us to discover. Samsung has understood that, so in the process of participating in SIC's training program, in addition to slides designed according to very scientific topic, we also experienced a standard practice environment. In particular, we also received the opportunity to take part in an internship at SRV (Samsung Research and Development Center). With the knowledge coming from programming at SRV, we confidently programmed to guide our spirit to participate in the Robocon  today. As a graduate student, I think these will be memories that each participant will carry with them for a lifetime. I will try to continue my studies so that I can come back here and become an official employee of Samsung. Once again, on behalf of the students of the Samsung Innovation Campus, I'd like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Samsung.”

As part of the project, with the desire to create a healthy playground for students to fully demonstrate the acquired knowledge and skills as well as have the opportunity to interact with other counterparts that have the same passion across the country, the project coordinator organized the Science and Technology Innovation Competition "Innovation Tech Challenge - 2023" for students who have been participating in the SIC program, with the Robocon format. This is also the first time the competition has applied this brand new format. The competition has the participation of 6 university teams and 8 high school teams from 7 provinces. Teams will build their own robot model and earn points by using their robots to compete on a same ground, overcoming tasks and obstacles. The final result, after dramatic competitions, with ingenuity in skills and fully functional products, AD2 WIN teams from An Duong High School - Hai Phong and WARRIOTS from Duy Tan University - Da Nang became the two winning teams.

Speaking at the event, Mr. Choi Joo Ho, President of Samsung Vietnam Complex said, “With the vision of contributing to society for the future generation, Samsung is implementing a variety of activities to support the youth, helping them to build their own better world. Samsung will also try our best, not only being the 'largest FDI enterprise in Vietnam, the largest contributor to Vietnam's exports' but also the enterprise that makes the most efforts in training technology talent in Vietnam, and continuously develop to become an enterprise that always accompanies the Vietnamese people”.

At the event, Mr. Tran Van Dat - Acting Director of Political Education and Student Affairs Department, Ministry of Education and Training shared: “Samsung Innovation Campus program is one of the most valuable and practical program.
