Education Begins with Innovation


Knowledge, imagination, and scientific method are propelling our world to new heights. People have always had a human thirst for inventiveness, and now we have the skills and technology to bring our ideas to life. That's why Intel equips you—students, researchers, faculty, anyone—to build your own vision of the future.

Empowering the Next Generation

From our very first days, Intel has fostered and promoted the next generation of technology innovators and leaders. From teaching resources and student courseware to world-class research collaborations and technology competitions, we have invested over $1 billion in higher education programs since our founding.
