National Engineers Week takes place this year from March 2nd – 8th. The week-long festival of nationwide events, of which Intel is a proud supporter, celebrates the world of engineering. To coincide with Engineers Week, Intel Ireland will this week share our #IAMANENGINEER campaign which captures the diverse and dynamic world of engineering through the eyes of a number of different Intel engineers. Next in the series is Amy Rudd, a Chemical Engineer who speaks about her role at Intel.
In school I liked maths and science subjects so I opted to do a Science degree in Maynooth University. In college I discovered I really liked chemistry so went on to do a PhD in physical chemistry.
Since joining Intel I have done a number of different jobs. My first two positions were in the Yield Department. My job in the Yield Department was like being a detective trying to identify signals in the data and then following up with other engineers to try and improve the quality of our production line. In my current job, I am responsible for the chemicals that are used in the manufacturing of microprocessors. I need to ensure our chemical pumping equipment is working correctly and that we supply good quality chemical.
It involves working as a team with technicians and other engineers to solve problems and come up with ways to do things better. I also get to work on my own on things such as planning improvement projects so I have the best of both worlds. No two days are the same so it’s never boring!
