Summer is almost here! Students are finishing up their schoolwork and families are beginning to make plans for the coming months, but that doesn’t mean students can’t keep exploring their academic skills and interests. For high schoolers passionate about technology, SAP provides an exciting opportunity to learn about the newest technologies that industry professionals use every day to help the world run better and improve people’s lives.
Each year, SAP’s Premium Hub Center of Expertise (CoE) in North America hosts high school students to participate in a weeklong Summer Orientation. The program provides students with the opportunity to learn about SAP technologies through different activities while receiving educational and career guidance from professionals in the field. SAP experts lead daily, interactive sessions that cover a variety of exciting topics, from coding and data analytics to SAP Cloud, IoT, and Mobile platforms. Over the course of the week, students use their technical skills and newly acquired knowledge to resolve real-world scenarios using SAP technologies. This year we are excited to host the orientation in-person at the Newtown Square campus (outside of Philadelphia). There, students will be able to explore the office, as well as participate in hands-on activities.
Last year, Summer Orientation featured a jam-packed schedule, from expert innovation sessions to career development guidance. The week started off with a brief introduction of SAP along with a presentation on the various internship opportunities offered to college students. Students also had a career tip session, where they received professional advice about their educational journey and beyond. Later in the week, students also met Balaji Rao Gaddam, Head of Premium Hub CoE North America, who shared the Premium Hub CoE’s purpose and role in helping the world run better and improving people’s lives. Balaji also talked to the students about their future and discussed his role at SAP. Over the course of the week, students had the opportunity to learn about the latest SAP technologies that industry professionals use every day, such as BTP, CAI, DShop and IRPA.
Students work on a primary project throughout the week that is always relevant to the latest in technology. The students’ work has evolved over the years, much like how SAP’s products have evolved as well! In previous years of the program, students have built projects using a wide variety of SAP technologies. For example, last year students built a daily planner app using SAP’s MDK toolkit, while also leveraging SAP Mobile Services and SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP). At the end of the week, students will be able to showcase their project to their fellow peers and Premium Hub CoE team members.
SAP wants to be involved in providing students with the guidance necessary to make informed decisions about their futures. What better way to achieve this than offering students access to the cutting-edge technologies created by SAP which drive innovation and the future of digital business transformation? These exciting activities make the Premium Hub CoE’s High School Summer Orientation a unique opportunity for students who are passionate about computer science, allowing them to explore their interests before they graduate and embark on the next stage of their educational journeys.
