About the IDT Partnership

Northeastern’s partnership with Integrated Device Technology (IDT) highlights the university’s unique approach to education. Northeastern is co-located on IDT’s San Jose campus to offer STEM professionals at the company, and throughout the region, educational programs designed to advance and enhance their work experience, skills, and career goals.

The value of Northeastern’s partnership with IDT lies within the company’s culture of learning and innovation. The university’s convenient location within IDT’s San Jose facility supports the university’s industry-aligned degree offerings, and facilitates research partnerships that contribute to the Bay Area’s knowledge and innovation economies.

IDT President and CEO Greg Waters, who holds a master’s degree in computer science from Northeastern, says the benefits will extend far beyond IDT’s campus.

“IDT’s partnership with Northeastern will bring budding engineering and research talent into our corporate offices, but the benefits will extend far beyond our campus. Northeastern’s programs and approach to applied research will serve as an incubator for top-tier talent, grooming students for careers in technology in Silicon Valley and beyond. It’s a bridge between academia and the tech industry that should be welcomed by tech-focused students and companies alike.” —Greg Waters, President & CEO, IDT

The partnership serves IDT’s long-term objectives by directly investing in its employees so they can advance in their own careers within IDT and help the company grow.
