About Intel Internship Program

Intel is an American multinational semiconductor chip maker corporation headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Intel is the world's largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker, based on revenue.

Our interns are continually surprised with the responsibility and importance of the projects they are assigned. As a company, Intel continues to be impressed with the enthusiasm, fresh ideas, and overall capabilities of our interns. Even more amazing is the impact that our former interns are making as full-time employees after graduation. If you are up for a challenge, an internship with Intel is what you are looking for.

The benefits
Interns are considered valuable members of the Intel team, and therefore may earn many of the benefits available to full-time employees, including:

Real-world experience with leading-edge technologies

Competitive salaries

Networking with Intel managers and executives

Vacation, holiday time, and earned credit towards sabbaticals

Access to Intel University classes for professional and personal development

Relocation assistance and the ability to live and work in new locations

Consideration for full-time employment when you graduate


Intel is looking for fast learners enrolled in bachelor's, master's, or doctoral programs in engineering, science, and business-related fields with a 3.0 or higher GPA on a 4.0 scale.

Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, former internship and work experience, demonstrated leadership ability, and team-building skills are all advantages. Versatility and the flexibility to adapt to new situations are essential.

Note: Students must be authorized to work in the United States without restriction*, and complete a required background investigation.

*Intel hires qualified applicants who are fully authorized to work in the U.S., i.e. individuals authorized to work without any time- or employer-related restrictions. People with temporary work authorizations, such as students in practical training status (i.e. F1 visa), will be considered only for positions where Intel is experiencing a demonstrated shortage of candidates with a particular skill. Intel cannot hire students from controlled countries and/or countries requiring export licensing.
