FICE works with institutions, instructors, corporations and youth around the world.

FICE is focused on three areas:

  • Curriculum enhancement, with focus on experiential learning, at leading engineering colleges.
  • Delivery of training programs in areas like innovation and entrepreneurship.
  • Digital literacy programs are offered in rural areas to promote entrepreneurship among youth and women.



2. Intel College Excellence Program


FICE is working with Intel Technology India Private Limited to rollout the Intel College Excellence Program for engineering colleges and other institutions in India.



Two specific programs are delivered to end users under the Intel College Excellence Program



  • This program entails establishment of Intel Intelligent Systems Labs within college premises with associated curriculum, training of the trainers, student mentoring and ongoing collaboration/support.
  • Intel Ideation Camps are offered to all kinds of institutions to help make their student body more innovative and entrepreneurial. Please visit the Intel Youth Enterprise website for more information on Ideation camps.
