Dell Technologies and Intel are bringing advanced artificial intelligence (AI) education to the Lords Institute of Engineering & Technology, Telangana through a significant partnership.
In an effort to fill the digital skills gap and better prepare students for the industry, the two tech giants have embedded Intel’s ‘AI for Youth’ program within the existing curriculum. The overarching goal is to make AI more accessible for the next generation, building an AI-ready ecosystem on campus.
In collaboration with Intel, the institute is introducing a robust AI readiness program that places an emphasis on fostering the necessary skills in future AI professionals. Intel will provide training to select faculty members, offering over 170 hours of AI-focused curriculum.
The comprehensive program includes hands-on student learning through bootcamps, AI-Thons, and virtual showcases. Additionally, the partnership paves the way for the establishment of an AI Skills Lab, powered by Dell Optiplex, where students will undertake projects in computer vision, natural language processing (NLP), and work with OpenVINO and Intel’s Neural Compute Stick 2.

Innovation in technology and education is key to building the future workforce”
With Lords Institute of Engineering & Technology Institute serving as a focal point, the initiative is expected to yield innovative projects based on NLP, computer vision, and statistical data analytics, all aimed at creating a tangible impact on society. As AI continues to evolve, the program plans to keep pace by providing updated training sessions and workshops.
Syed Touseef Ahmed — Lords Institute of Engineering and Technology Vice-Chairman said: “At Lords we believe that one of the greatest enablers for quality learning is top notch infrastructure at our student’s disposal.
