EP&T: Samsung deepens partnership with Centennial College
by EP&T Magazine
Breaking new ground in education as part of The Samsung Tech Institute initiative
Samsung Electronics Canada has extended its partnership with Centennial College’s Electronics Engineering Technician program through 2023. Over the last five years, Samsung has supported more than 275 Centennial students to develop the skills needed to pursue a wide range of opportunities in electronics engineering for digital appliances, with a number of program graduates now working at Samsung Service Centres across the province.
The Samsung Tech Institute and the Electronics Engineering Technician program integrate curriculum that was developed by Samsung and Centennial College in response to the strong demand for electronic technicians in the digital home appliance service sector.
Interact with peers and demonstrate skills
At the heart of the two-year program is a fully-functioning digital servicing and home appliance lab at the college’s Progress Campus. The space allows students to interact with peers and demonstrate the skills they have learned in the classroom utilizing Samsung equipment. This experience provides a powerful and practical reference throughout the certification process.
