Career and Technical Talks by Intel Malaysia Design Center

 

25th April 2016, a career and technical talk was given by Intel Malaysia Design Center delegates at Faculty Engineering, Universiti Putra Malaysia, Selangor. The on-campus career talk is an annual event hold prior to student graduation with the objectives of to educate students on career at Intel Malaysia and sharing of advanced topics in IC design. Intel delegates consists of 8 managers and engineers from 5 Intel groups, namely Data Center Group (DCG), Device Development Group (DDG), Design and Technology Group (DTG), Intellectual Property Group (IPG) and Platform Engineering Group (PEG).There were about 80 students with engineering, science and technology background attended the talk. In the morning session, the event started with a brief introduction about Intel Malaysia Design Center and career opportunity at Intel. Then, each group manager presented their slides, focusing mainly on various design engineering positions in respective group’s job scopes and requirements, working environment and work culture.

Several key-points were discussed during the talk, which include the front-end design of a chipset for mainframe computers and cloud servers, system-on-chip design starting from RTL model to the physical design, and finally to silicon chip tape-out. The design technology solutions that are used across different design groups to improve work productivity were also discussed. In addition, IPG and PEG managers also discussed about the validation and verification on pre- and post-silicon for both processor and peripheral chipset. Lastly, Intel delegates shared the challenges for the engineering jobs such as working with teams of different time zone and working with colleagues of different countries with different cultures.

Following the session is an hour of networking session to promote deeper communication between students with the Intel delegates. Later in the afternoon session, Intel HR manager gave a talk on writing good resume and essential preparation for job interview.

The event is co-organized by IEEE CASS Malaysia chapter, IEEE COMSOC Malaysia chapter and Faculty of Engineering Universiti Putra Malaysia.
