UA and Intel Join Forces to Deliver Online Engineering Degree Program

March 2013 - Thanks to a new Intel-UA collaboration, Intel employees now have the opportunity to boost their education to help keep Intel the world's biggest chip manufacturer.

"I've always wanted to complete my four-year engineering degree, but kids and a family made it more and more difficult to find the time," said Mike Dokouzian, a facilities manager at Intel's Ocotillo site in Chandler, Arizona, and one of the first students to enroll in the program.

Intel's Fab/Sort Manufacturing College of Engineering (COE) - the company's corporate university - and the University of Arizona College of Engineering are working together to give Intel employees a distance-learning opportunity to earn UA Bachelor of Science degrees in chemical engineering and materials science and engineering.

The online program allows Intel FSM employees the flexibility to further their education while managing their work and life needs.
