UT ECE Graduate Student Khubaib Receives Corporate Intel PhD Fellowship

Intel Fellowship

UT ECE PhD student Khubaib has been selected to receive the Corporate Intel PhD Fellowship, a prestigious honor awarded to "PhD candidates pursuing leading-edge work in fields related to Intel's business and research interests." Select U.S. universities are invited to submit a limited number of students for consideration. Those students selected by their university are then carefully reviewed by the Intel fellows and their designees who choose the winning students.

The program encourages applicants from underrepresented minority groups, including women to apply through their university. The fellowship includes a cash award (tuition and stipend), an Intel Technical Liaison and travel funds to meet the liaison either at a conference or here at Intel. These students are also prioritized for internships and hiring within the company. This is a highly competitive program with a limited number of fellowships awarded annually.

Intel® Corporation and the Intel Foundation together support three graduate fellowship programs at select universities in the United States. These fellowships are awarded to outstanding students in Engineering, Computer Science and other technical majors focusing on semiconductor technologies, micro-architecture, Software Technology and Design, and communications. Students in these programs are prioritized for receiving internships. The students in the Ph.D. fellowship program are provided with the opportunity to meet their designated Intel Technical Liaison face to face either at a conference or at Intel.

Khubaib was nominated for the Fellowship by UT ECE Professor Yale Patt. This is the third consecutive year that one of Dr. Patt's students has received this prestigious Fellowship.
