Curriculum and Faculty Development initiatives under the Intel® Higher Education Program include:
The introduction and upgrade of university courses through curriculum workshops conducted by world-class university professors for local university faculty. Supporting laboratory equipment donations are also provided to support curriculum enhancements.
Faculty internship programs which facilitate university exposure to industry challenge.
Technical lectures conducted by local and international Intel experts to share the latest industry trends and technologies.
Results of Intel® Higher Education Programs in the Philippines’ curriculum development activities have grown two-fold over the past 2 years. Overall, twenty-three university courses have been enhanced thereby benefiting hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students.
Furthermore, Intel Philippines has worked with the faculty of relevant departments in four leading universities namely the University of the Philippines (UP), De La Salle University (DLSU), Ateneo de Manila University (ADMU), and the Mapua Institute of Technology (MIT).
Moreover, faculty internships provide hands-on industry experience to university faculty to enable them to provide up-to-date lessons for enriched student learning.
