Intel has taken steps to sign Memorandum of Understandings between a number of universities in order to further connect ties between education and industry and also to help fuel the innovation economy here in Ireland.
The partnerships focuses on a variety of areas such as talent, research, technology, and national policy associated with research and education.
This sponsorship programme will see 15 UCD students selected each year to receive a monetary grant as well as ongoing support and mentor provision by Intel. The eligible students are those beginning full time Masters programmes in Science and Engineering related disciplines.
The programme provides each participant with €3000 to support their academic studies and also ensures that students have the opportunity to experience practical learning which is aligned to the needs of industry. The provision of employee mentors by Intel provides students with a direct relationship to the world of work.
As part of the Trinity Employability Award programme, students participate in a specialist curriculum that helps to further develop their skills and graduate attributes to succeed in their studies and career.
Students attend Intel-led workshops using problem-solving methodologies and apply learning to work-related situations. They also enhance personal and professional development through thirty hours of extra-curricular activity, and learn how to critically reflect on their skills and articulate these to employers through a workshop led by the Careers Advisory Service with Student Learning Development.
