SUMMER INTERNSHIP AT SAMSUNG RESEARCH INSTITUTE,NOIDA
I am a fourth year UG student from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in IIT Kharagpur. I got my 3rd-year summer internship via CDC in Samsung Research Institute Noida.
SELECTION PROCEDURE :
Selection procedure for Samsung Research Institute Noida is very simple and easy. They take a test in their own software which they will ask you to download. They give only one question in the online round for which the time duration is three hours. You can compile code any number of times but the number of submissions is limited to ten(most probably). Once you submit and if all hidden test-cases run successfully, you are done, else you just lost one submission. If you lost all ten submissions, you can’t submit anymore. The online test is followed by a technical round and then HR round.
HOW TO PREPARE? :
Questions asked in the online round are very easy and mostly based on data structures like 2-d matrix. If you have done a little bit of coding in summers then you can easily crack this test. In technical round also they ask simple questions about matrix, string matching, arrays, linked list, stacks, queues etc. I would suggest you to start with geeksforgeeks and learn the basics of Data Structures then complete Topic-wise Algorithms.
YOUR PROJECT DETAILS:
In SRI Noida, I was allocated in Application Group. My Project was based on Machine Learning and Image Processing. I had to do research and develop an android controlled software using Deep Learning. Some of my mates got projects on AI and ML and some got projects in android development and enhancement. Moreover, the project you will get depends on which team you got allocated.
Company culture is pretty nice. People are very nice and helpful. You will have to work 40 hours per week inside the office. On daily basis, you have to be at least 4 hours a day inside the office for full attendance. That gives a good flexibility in working. You will get lunch and dinner. You can also go to a cafe for coffee and drinks. For fitness, they have a gym, yoga, Zumba classes, and a medical room.
WHO SHOULD APPLY FOR THIS KIND OF INTERNSHIP:
Those who want to do some good things in android development or in the mobile industry can go for this type of internship. Samsung is a well-established leader in the mobile industry and it really cares about human resources i.e. its employees. They pay you well and they treat you well.
YOUR ADVICE TO THEM :
If you are going for an internship in SRI Noida then the work you will get will depend on which team you will get allocated to. It can’t be generalized just by my work/project/experience. If you are not getting any concrete project in the first week itself better you share your interest with your manager and ask for the project in that field.
