Intel will offer mentoring facilities to 10 select institutes across the country to provide faculties and students the hands-on experience and training to meet the industry demands. In the beginning of 2006, Intel invited proposals from institutes to develop course curriculum and for teaching courses. Proposals submitted by IIT-Kanpur and the Indian Institute of Science were approved. Subsequently, IIT-Kanpur developed a new course and is offering the same for M.Tech students and senior undergraduate students of the department of computer science and engineering during the first semester of academic year. The success of the programme has caused Intel to turn towards tier-II institutes, with an emphasis on the creation of centres. The company reached out to 470 faculty members from 206 institutes at four national-level conferences held in Bangalore, Jaipur, Mumbai and Chennai and invited proposals for changing their computer architecture curriculum
