The ITE-Samsung Tech Hub was opened this week to provide real-world training that will enhance the employability of ITE (Institute of Technical Education) students in Singapore.
It consists of a Display Solutions Centre to showcase various emerging display technologies, and a Mobile Service Centre which simulates Samsung’s customer service environment to train students in mobile device technical support and customer service.
ITE College East students enrolled in Nitec in Electronics (Mobile Devices) and Nitec in Electronics (Display Technology) are currently taking lessons at the facility.
To enhance their applied learning experience, 52 students in Nitec in Electronics (Mobile Devices) are also undergoing an eight-week joint certification training programme that focuses on technical training and product knowledge of the latest Samsung smartphones and tablets.
The top 10 percent of students from the joint certification training programme will be awarded internship opportunities at Samsung customer service centres to further hone these industry-relevant skills.
