What do our mentors think about this program?

“I always enjoyed working with students, and this is the reason why I started my professional career with an academic track. When Intel opened the scholarship program for students, it was a great opportunity for me to connect the engineering experience and taste for innovation we have at Intel with the passion and creativity of the students. We drove the exploration projects in the area of Perceptual Computing where we enhanced the Human-Computer Interaction using state-of-the art technologies for gesture-based interfaces.”  - George - Mentor, Open Source Software Pathfinding Technical Lead


What do the students think about this program?

"I had the opportunity of receiving an Intel scholarship for working on my diploma project in the last year of my undergraduate studies focusing on mobile security. I benefited from technical mentorship from one of the engineers at Intel Romania and had the possibility to work in the Intel Student Open Lab within University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest. In was a great experience for me from which I have learned a lot of new things, particularly given the fact that this was my first contact with this type of professional environment. In addition, it has made me aware of the many opportunities in this this field and eventually led to my applying for an internship within Intel.” Alexandru - Mentee, Scholarship Program 2013
