Intel Ireland sponsors 14 Masters Students from DCU, the students, all pursuing full time Masters in Science, Engineering and related disciplines, attended a ceremony at DCU to recognize their achievements to date, and have also visited the Intel Campus in Leixlip to meet with their industry mentors and get a taste of what a career at Intel would be like.

The sponsorship programme is part of an ongoing strategic partnership between Intel and DCU following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding by Intel General Manager; Eamonn Sinnott and DCU President; Brian McCraith, forma in January 2017.

In addition to providing each participant with a monetary sum to support their academic studies, the program also provides employee mentors from Intel to give the students a direct relationship to the world of work.

Speaking at the DCU event, Hugh Hardiman, Director of public affairs said, “So much of the success of Intel Ireland is due to the determination, ingenuity and creativity of the people who work there, and that is why talent development is at the cornerstone of this Memorandum of Understanding with DCU”
