Environmental Engineer Cathy Cronin 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 Cathy Cronin, an Environmental Engineer who speaks about her role at Intel.



My name is Cathy Cronin.  I’m an Environmental Engineer.

I enjoyed biology, chemistry and maths in school which led me to study Environmental Sciences in Trinity College Dublin.

When I left college I went straight into industry working mainly with pharmaceutical companies.  I knew I could make a difference and support businesses to make environmental improvements.

I have been working at Intel for the past 12 years.  My job role is varied, one day I could be in the office working on our management systems ensuring the site remains legally compliant with our Environmental Protection Agency licence.  Another day I could be out in the facility areas such as wastewater treatment plants, energy centres and water purification areas doing tasks such as inspections to ensure that our systems are working.

There are many things I love about my job. Intel have a motto of ‘Learn, Act & Share ’ which means I get to share my own learnings in places like schools where I talk about environmental improvements that Intel has completed and which schools and other community groups could implement to gain similar improvements. The second thing which I really love is the opportunity to travel to work at other Intel sites.  I have been lucky to complete trips to Israel and the United States.  It’s an opportunity to experience a different culture and all that country has to offer.
