With its push to become an enterprise mobility segment leader, Samsung Singapore announced a collaboration on Thursday with Singapore's Nanyang Polytechnic to establish a Digital Convergence & Mobility Innovation Centre to develop solutions within education and retail sectors.

At a ceremony at its Singapore headquarters, the mobility company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) to mark the establishment of a Digital Convergence & Mobility Innovation Centre to develop and showcase advancement of the collaboration.

According to Harry Lee, MD, Samsung Singapore, the Digital Convergence & Mobility Innovation Centre will enable students to research into collaborative learning and conceptualise a learning space where digital technologies could be integrated to enhance effectiveness of teaching and learning.

Students will also develop and explore different innovative ways to enhance retail solutions to improve customers' experience and business outcomes, he said. They will also have the opportunity to develop real-life application on smart devices, including smart TVs and tablets, through trainings, workshops, seminars and industry attachments at Samsung.

Expressing his excitement at the collaboration, Chan Lee Mun, principal & CEO, NYP, said, "Through this partnership, our students will gain access to the latest technology and solutions used by industry. The knowledge and skills gained through this exposure will certainly add value and enhance their career-readiness."
