Bernie Capraro, Intel Research and Higher Education Programme Manager, has been named as an Adjunct Professor at Technological University Dublin (TU Dublin).

Ireland’s first Technological University, TU Dublin, was established at the beginning of this year and builds on the rich heritage of its founding organisations – DIT, IT Blanchardstown and IT Tallaght.

Intel Ireland has ongoing relationships on all TU Dublin campuses and in 2017 signed a Memorandum of Understanding with DIT (now TU Dublin – City Campus) to establish a strategic partnership covering a varied programme of activity in a number of key areas of mutual interest. The appointment of Bernie Capraro as an Adjunct Professor is one such activity.

As Adjunct Professor, Bernie Capraro’s extensive experience in both research and enterprise will contribute to the academic development of TU Dublin. Specifically, he will have the opportunity to contribute in a number of different areas including, guidance and insights on curriculum and pedagogical developments in fields such as maintenance engineering, and input to research plans and strategies for the new TU Dublin and the engineering discipline area.

Bernie Capraro has worked at Intel Ireland for the past 22 years holding various engineering and management roles across the wafer fabrication facilities. He received a Master’s Degree in Engineering (MEng) from Newcastle upon Tyne Polytechnic (with Distinction) and his semiconductor career spans 32 years, with other Process and Equipment Engineering positions held at Telefunken GmbH (Ge), Nortel/Bell Northern Research (UK/Canada), Applied Materials (UK) and Newport Wafer Fab (UK).

Bernie Capraro is currently responsible for all silicon nanotechnology research involving Intel in Ireland, helping to identify potential future technology options to Intel in collaboration with Research Centres, Academia and Industry across Ireland and Europe. In addition, he manages Intel’s relationships with Higher Level Education institutions in Ireland, helping to produce a highly educated talent pool in the region, progress Intel’s research agenda, and help set policy direction for the good of both academia and industry.

Welcoming the appointment, TU Dublin President, Professor David Fitzpatrick said, “In his role of Adjunct Professor at TU Dublin, Mr. Capraro brings a remarkable wealth of experience gathered during an illustrious career in research and technology, and he will make a most distinguished contribution to our University. We look forward to his input in research and in particular in programme development across a wide range of areas in engineering, science technology and design.”
