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 Structural Engineer Ken Hoffman who speaks about his role at Intel.
Hi, my name is Ken Hoffman and I’m a Structural Engineer. As part of my work at Intel I am involved in numerous construction projects on site ranging from small system upgrades to large factory (Fab) conversions.
My favourite part of the job is the fact that every construction project is unique in its own way and brings about its own set of challenges. As part of my role within Intel I work closely with my colleagues in other engineering disciplines and also with the many different design firms (Architects and Engineers) and Contractors working on Intel projects in Leixlip.
In school my favourite subjects were Physics, Maths & Geography. I studied Structural Engineering in DIT Bolton St and subsequently complete an MBA.
Before joining Intel I worked in a number of consulting engineering design firms on a broad range of projects.
