We’re very pleased to announce this year’s cohort of Intel Student Partners! This is an extremely talented group of university students picked from 5 universities across Kenya, who will be running Intel activities on their campuses over the course of the year. This program is designed to enable students at leading universities across the country to have the opportunity to work closely with Intel and understand our latest technologies. The program is for students who realize the best technology careers come to those who chase their dreams.
The Intel Software and Services Group (SSG) opened its first office in East Africa in April 2013. This was a big move for Intel, which had previously only had offices in South Africa and Egypt. The local SSG is responsible for working with East African developers to provide them with design tools, resources and expert consulting.
