Handset Hardware Design Development Program 2016-17
Work-life balance is important! Especially when you're away from home for a long while. As our new friends stayed in Taiwan for several weeks, they took the chance to be tourists and experience a few wonders of the Island.
On arrival engineering managers from India took a tour of the MediaTek HQ showroom. The students were introduced to MediaTek innovations and technologies by staff, learning their significance and advantages for their future products.
The closing ceremony was held at the MediaTek Headquarters in Hsinchu, Taiwan on 13th January. Ms. Aruna Sundararajan, Secretary of MeitY, joined the ceremony via video conference. MediaTek Chairman and CEO, Mr. Ming-Kai Tsai congratulated all participants who completed the training in person, along with Mr. Ming-Ji Wu, Director General of Industrial Development Bureau at MOEA in Taiwan.
How the Make in India program originated. Working with MediaTek, we hope to offer Indian engineers the chance to create unique products that meet the exact needs of their local market.
MediaTek builds from the foundation: from project overview, through hardware and software knowledge to real hands-on practice.
We worked with engineers to understand what tests are required and how these labs perform the tests to make great smartphones.
