Georgia Tech Collaborates with Intel to Offer Master’s Degree Program

Atlanta, GA

Georgia Tech and Intel‘s corporate university, the Fab/Sort
Manufacturing College of Engineering, have joined forces to bring Georgia
Tech’s distance learning master’s degree program in electrical and computer engineering
to Intel employees.

Georgia Tech’s electrical and computer engineering classes
are taught and video-recorded at Georgia Tech’s state-of-the-art distance learning
facilities, giving the Intel students the flexibility to review lectures at
their convenience and as often as they wish.

The elective curriculum for the program includes three Intel
College of Engineering developed courses taught by Intel faculty, which makes
the curriculum tailored for the company’s needs.

Intel and Georgia Tech’s School of Electrical and Computer
Engineering have a long history of collaboration in research and education. 

“We're excited about this new partnership with Intel, and
the opportunity to grow the already significant number of Georgia Tech alumni
at Intel,” said Douglas B. Williams, interim chair of Georgia Tech’s School of
Electrical and Computer Engineering.  “The opportunity to work with
Fab/Sort Manufacturing employees as Georgia Tech students is expected to lead
to greater technical interaction and cross-fertilization.”

After a rigorous review process, select Intel College of
Engineering faculty members were approved by Georgia Tech as adjunct faculty.
The College of Engineering faculty brings Intel technical expertise to courses
while enriching and broadening the academic knowledge students’ gain through
Georgia Tech’s master’s in electrical and computer engineering program.

“With a global workforce, the distance learning aspect of
this three-year program is immensely attractive to all Intel employees by
providing the flexibility to take courses while managing their work and life
needs,” said Josh Walden, vice president and general manager of Fab/Sort
Manufacturing.  Intel’s COE program currently offers its courses in a
distance learning format for the benefit of FSM employees.
