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 Carmen Amorino, a Process Engineer who speaks about her role at Intel.
I am a physicist. I joined Intel in 2011 as a Process Engineer.
I work in the Cross Module Support Group, a team of engineers that guarantees the sustaining and continuity of the microchip production process.
One of our most challenging tasks that I undertake is to provide tools which control the cleanliness of the production process, something which is of critical importance because the process could be dramatically affected by the presence of micro particles. Particles come, in most cases, from human interaction with the work environment, at different stages of the process. So, I dress up with a special gown, hood, boots and gloves to trap the particles from my body and limit the contamination in the Intel clean room, my work environment and a super-clean, huge, location!
My job role requires a positive attitude, attention to detail, good technical skills, the ability to assign priorities, problem solving skills and a focus on customer service!
I love the ‘micro world’ since I was 10 years old when I visited a ‘Micro Word Science’ exhibition with my mother, in Naples.
