Samsung IoT Academy is a unique educational programme organised by Samsung in the leading Russian universities. The aim of the IoT Academy is to teach students the necessary skills and provide practical experience in the field of the Internet of Things and intelligent data analysis so that they get into the Industry 4.0 state of mind upon completion.
In September 2018, the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science successfully launched Samsung IoT Academy at South Ural State University. The long-term project designed by the experts from Samsung Electronics is aimed at providing free 2-semester training in IoT and intelligent data analysis for students.
IoT is the next step in internet evolution and the essential part of Industry 4.0. The Internet of Things refers to the interrelated objects connected to the Internet, ranging from home devices to industrial equipment, and the analysis of vast and varied data to manage the orchestration of such devices. Smart IoT systems do not require human intervention, resulting in the improvement of people’s quality of life and the optimisation of business processes.
- June 2018: South Ural State University and Samsung Electronics signed an agreement on the joint implementation of the Samsung IoT Academy educational programme.
- November 2018: official opening of Samsung IoT Academy, equipped with high-tech Samsung devices, prototyping tools, and Artik IoT modules. The Academy enables students to get hands-on experience and master their problem-solving skills to meet the challenges of the Internet of Things successfully.
