Through private sector partnerships, AMIDEAST has been able to provide specialized internship opportunities in the information and computer technology (ICT) and engineering fields to qualified professionals.
These opportunities provide on-the-job exposure to state-of-the-art techniques in these fields and access to mentors likely to have a critical impact on participants' career development.
In four years, 100 men and women have benefited from this internship program, which was launched with the Partnership for Lebanon, an American private sector initiative that is helping young Lebanese men and women develop skills needed to excel in the global economy. [ + ]
This new program will bring young professional students from Egypt and Saudi Arabia interested in the ICT field to complete internships at Intel facilities in the United States.
