ASU students experience Intel's ultimate engineering boot camp
Arizona State University students were among the first to participate in the Intel Ultimate Engineering Experience launched by the Intel Corp. in Chandler, Ariz., this summer with the first of a series of six-week “boot camps” for engineering students.
Through a competitive application process, 120 students – half of them from ASU and half from Chandler-Gilbert Community College – were selected to participate.
The students got hands-on technical training from veteran Intel engineers and guidance in professional networking, exploring career paths and job hunting.
They designed and tested robots, developed applications for electronic devices and tackled other real-world engineering challenges.
They also got advice from recent engineering graduates who led a discussion about how to survive engineering school.
Intel launched five additional Ultimate Engineering Experience sessions near its facilities in Folsom, Calif., Columbia, S.C., Hillsboro, Ore., Austin, Texas and Rio Rancho, N.M.
Students who successfully completed the program received a stipend and a scholarship from Intel.
