Chennai: In an attempt to bridge the rising gap between the academia and industry demands, Intel India has selected ten two tier institutes in the country. A senior Intel technologist would mentor the ten selected institutes for the next two years under training sessions and workshops to introduce computer science students and teachers to programs, which work on threaded, multi-core and multi-processor systems to maximize knowledge and performance, Intel statement said.

These centers would be refined as center of excellence as part of the Intel's World Ahead Program. Under the program, the ten institutes would receive an equipment grant worth $150 K for lab use. " The objective of this initiative is to educate today's science and engineering students and developers to architect, develop and debug the next generation of software applications for modern, multi-core platforms," said Manav Subodh, manager, Higher Education, Intel Technology India.
