#IAMANENGINEER – Caoimhe Mooney

Computer Engineer Caoimhe Mooney speaks about her role at Intel

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 Caoimhe Mooney, a Computer Engineer who speaks about her role at Intel.

 

 

Hi my name is Caoimhe Mooney and I am a computer engineer (almost).

I am currently doing an internship with Intel as part of my 4th year in Trinity College.

My job here is to help automate and track the testing of new code. I am really enjoying it especially getting to learn about what each part of my team is working on and how everything eventually all comes together to work.

Teamwork is a major part of my job, and a major part of any computer engineers job, as everyone’s code needs to work together for a project to finally work.

In school I didn’t do what are considered the usual subjects for engineering but I enjoyed maths. I didn’t decide to go into engineering until late in my last year of school and decided to do general engineering as there was too much choice.

When I got in to college and started learning how to code I realised I really enjoyed the problem solving and the instant satisfaction you get when your code eventually works.

With computer engineering you get to take big problems and break them down to slowly solve them piece by piece. Every bit that works feels like a great achievement even if it’s only the first stepping stone in what is going to be a massive project.
