The world’s largest maker of chips for PCs will partner with Strathmore and Nairobi universities to offer a software development curriculum to students.
Intel East Africa general manager Danie Steyn said the company will ensure the students get enough facilities for training.
Intel will construct a hardware lab, start a student developer partner programme and integrate high performance computing into the university curriculum.
Through this initiative, students will be equipped with necessary skills to be able to create user experience applications on Intel-based hardware.
Intel Corporation aims at nurturing 400 software developers and creating 100 new local applications for its mobile and tablets customers.
