Intel and UCD Renew Collaboration on Talent, Research and Education

 

In addition to the signing of a renewed partnership between Intel and UCD, 15 students from Engineering and Science disciplines were awarded today with UCD-Intel Masters Student Scholarships.

Intel and University College Dublin (UCD) have announced the next phase of a strategic partnership between the two organisations. Their renewed commitment will see Intel and UCD work closely together over the next 5 years across three key areas: talent, research, and national policy associated with research and education.

The partnership includes a substantial investment by Intel in the development of an Engineering Suite in the new UCD Centre for Creativity, a landmark building at the main Stillorgan Entrance to the campus set to be part of the University’s Future Campus.

In addition to the signing of the renewed partnership, 15 UCD students from Science and Engineering disciplines were awarded UCD-Intel Masters Student Scholarships. Each recipient is provided with a €3,000 bursary to support their academic studies and given the opportunity to experience practical learning aligned to the needs of industry. Additionally, they are provided with employee mentors by Intel to give them a direct relationship to the world of work.

Five students form Chemical & Bioprocess Engineering were recipients of the UCD-Intel Masters Student Scholarship, as follows:

  • Emily White
  • Kallum Doyle
  • Ciaran O’Sullivan
  • Hazal Beceriklican
  • Janet Tsanng
