MediaTek Inc. has debuted a smartphone design-training program to foster and develop talent for India´s fast-growing handset industry.
The training program, created in collaboration with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), India, Indian Cellular Association (ICA) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs(MOEA), Taiwan, will propel the ´Make in India´ initiative. MediaTek will share its smartphone design expertise, and leverage its well-established global ecosystem to support the program.
The two-and-a-half-month program, scheduled to start later this year, provides hands-on training to managers and senior engineers from India on efficient planning and execution of handset design projects. The guidance and education offered through the training program will give engineers expertise to advance handset design in India.
Since 1997, MediaTek has been a pioneering fabless semiconductor company and a market leader in cutting-edge systems-on-chip (SoC) for mobile devices, wireless networking, HDTV, DVD and Blu-ray.
