Samsung Partners Korea Univeristy to Nurture Talent for 6G7

Samsung has been spearheading research for the next frontier of wireless communication, 6G, for quite some time now. It has talked about the tech on multiple occasions and has a roadmap to test it by 2030.

While it may seem a tad too early to talk about 6G, considering that 5G is yet to enter most parts of the world, Samsung wants to culture talent for its 6G networks now.

Samsung will pick students from Korea University every year for 6G reserach

Samsung Electronics has collaborated with Korea University to establish a department dedicated to the research and development of next-generation technologies such as 6G. Starting in 2023, 30 students will have the privilege of studying in Korea University’s next-gen tech department and learning the ropes with hands-on experience. Furthermore, all of the candidates are guaranteed (for the most part) employment at Samsung after they graduate.

In addition, Samsung will also pay for all their education-related expenses, such as tuition fees. The end goal of this endeavour is to pick nurture talent from a young age, something that Samsung has been wanting to do since its massive corporate restructuring earlier this year. The president of Samsung Electronics had the following to say about the partnership.

6G is unlikely to become mainstream for the next ten years or so, based on current industry estimates.

The technology is riddled with challenges, many of which are yet to be addressed by conventional market solutions. Samsung’s decision to get into 6G research this early should bode well for its long-term prospects and give it an edge over competitors such as Huawei, who are facing crippling sanctions.
