Information for Prospective Students
The Intel partnership is a recognition of how important research and innovation are to large global companies.
Seeing London as a 'test bed of Innovation', Intel established a collaborative research Institute for Sustainable Connected Cities in May 2012.
In partnership with UCL and Imperial, the Institute is becoming a global hub, exploring how technology can sustain the social and economic development of cities worldwide. Harnessing real-time data and infrastructure information, researchers and students are solving the practical problems of today's cities, ranging from droughts and long commute times to wasteful use of energy.
“In 2050, most of the nine billion people in the world will live in cities,” says Justin Rattner, Intel chief technology officer and director of Intel Labs. “Therefore the demands of cities will be highly representative of the demands of humanity. Addressing these demands will be at the heart of the Intel Collaborative Research Institute for Sustainable Connected Cities, driving the development of new services to enhance people’s quality of life.”
UCL is also participating in Intel's annual programmes, which not only provide support to academics, but help to high-performing students to reach their potential.
