Eighteen UCD master’s students have received €3,000 and mentorship from Intel Ireland as part of a sponsorship programme.

The students visited Intel Ireland Wednesday, January 17 to receive their awards and meet their mentors.

“To borrow a phrase from Andy Bryant, Chairman of the Intel Board of Directors, ‘the ingredient we begin with is sand; everything else is value added by people,'” Intel Ireland General Manager Eamonn Sinnott said.

“So the bridge between sand and leading edge 14nm devices is the determination, ingenuity and creativity of the people working here, and that is why talent development is at the cornerstone of this Memorandum of Understanding with UCD.”

The sponsorship programme is part of a Memorandum of Understanding between Intel and UCD.
