Work for Intel
Want to be a part of something big?
Build something small.
The arrival of Intel’s $20 billion semiconductor manufacturing complex in central Ohio brings with it the promise of 3,000 high-paying high-tech jobs building “chips” that power almost every electronic device that we depend on for life. What’s more, Intel’s announcement, along with recent expansions for the Google and Facebook data centers at Ohio’s New Albany International Business Park, further solidifies Ohio as a hub for high-tech careers.
These developments translate into big opportunities for people across the state, including in Appalachian Ohio. Ohio University is partnering with Intel and with other institutions of higher education to educate people across the region about the career opportunities available and to provide the training they need to embrace them. Discover how you can prepare for these high-tech opportunities.
Ohio University leading Appalachian Semiconductor Education and Technical (ASCENT) Ecosystem
Intel awarded Ohio University $3 million in grant funding to serve as the lead institution for the Appalachian Semiconductor Education and Technical (ASCENT) Ecosystem, a program that will create an inclusive workforce development and training program to cultivate the next generation of skilled technical professionals for Ohio’s emerging semiconductor industry.
