Dheemanth Nagaraj, who has a BTech in electrical engineering from the National Institute of Technology, Surathkal, Karnataka, and went on to do his masters in electrical and computer engineering at Purdue University in the US, now an executive at the Intel India Design Centre has earned the distinction of being designated an Intel Fellow.
For the first time in its 20-year history, an executive at the Intel India Design Centre has earned the distinction of being designated an Intel Fellow.
Nagaraj got the honour, which is given to outstanding technological experts within the company, for his innovations such as conceiving and building the Intel Xeon D processor, a density-optimised and low-power chip for the hyper-scale cloud, networking and storage market segments.
What makes Nagaraj’s achievement significant is the fact that there have been only about 80 Intel Fellows globally in the 50 years of the company’s operation.
The prestigious title is given to employees whose technological innovations are not only pathbreaking for Intel, but for the industry as a whole.
