Intel student program

We’ve had a very successful first year with the Intel Student Partner Program, which is an opportunity for students to act as liaisons between Intel and their universities.This program is designed to enable students at leading universities across the country to have the opportunity to work closely with Intel and understand our latest technologies. The program is for students who realize the best technology careers come to those who chase their dreams.

Our amazing Student Partners have run hackathons on their campusesin which they’ve trained their fellow students on Android and Intel architecture; as well as helping to organize and participate in events such as the Intel Inter-University Apps Challenge, the Internet of Things Challenge, andCode for Good. In addition, our Student Partners have stood out as exemplary performers. Some have gone on to win regional tech competitions such as the Ampion Bus Challenge, while others have been awarded prestigious scholarships to study abroad.
