Changing the World, One Graduate at a Time

The Intel® Higher Education Program

Equipping the next generation with the technology and entrepreneurial know-how to improve the world they live in—that’s what the Intel Higher Education effort is all about. Here’s how we do it:

  • We collaborate with professors on skills that create new technologies and new businesses.   
  • We partner with key universities to pursue advanced technology research.
  • We equip students with skills to innovate and bring products and services to market.
  • We catalyse governments, industry and NGOs to create a culture of innovation.
  • We connect academia to industry technology solution experts.

Intel, as a global technology leader, recognises that, to cater to the growing demand in the electronics industry, academia plays a pivotal role in building a high quality technical workforce and promoting research and innovation. The Higher Education group at Intel has consistently addressed this need and worked towards fruitful academic collaborations to build a more skilled workforce.

The Intel® Higher Education Program brings cutting-edge technology expertise to universities, encourages students to pursue technical degrees, and helps move technology out of university labs into local communities. The Program includes technology curriculum development, research grants, technology entrepreneurship forums and competitions, and mentoring by Intel technologists.
