Samsung India is planning to hire over 300 engineers from IITs

Gurugram: Samsung India is planning to hire over 300 engineers this year from Indian Institute of Technology this placement season to strengthen its research and development operations in India.

Company officials from three R&D centers located in Bengaluru, Delhi, and Noida, will visit the IITs at Delhi, Kanpur, Mumbai, Guwahati, Varanasi, Chennai, Kharagpur, and Roorkie starting December 1.

The R&D centers will also hire engineers from the newer IITs at Hyderabad, Gandhinagar, Patna, Bhubaneswar, Dhanbad, Ropar, Indore, Mandi, and Jodhpur.

Samsung has offered over 200 Pre-Placement Offers (PPOs) to students at the IITs this year.

“Our R&D centers 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,” said Sameer Wadhawan, Head, Human Resources, Samsung India.

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. Between the IITs and other engineering colleges, Samsung will hire close to 1,000 engineers. In all it has offered 350 PPOs this year.

“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 the opportunity to interact with the leaders and managers.

“This helps us select bright talents amongst them,” said Sameer Wadhawan.
