#IAMANENGINEER – Tzirath Perez

Computer Scientist and Software Engineer Tzirath Perez 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. First in the series is Computer Scientist and Software Engineer Tzirath Perez who speaks about her role at Intel.

 

 

Hi, my name is Tzirath Perez and I am a Computer Scientist and Software Engineer.  I attend Maynooth University and I am currently in my third year.

I am a Software Engineering intern in the Intel Movidius team as part of my 6-month work placement. Movidius is at the forefront of enabling new levels of intelligence for devices by delivering low-power, high-performance products in the area of computer vision. In my role I will be focusing specifically on testing and specification. My role involves making sure the software does what it should be doing. I enjoy working here because it helps me get out of my comfort zone, and I am constantly learning new things. The work environment is teamwork driven, which encourages me to do my best every day.

I first found my passion for engineering back in High School (Secondary school) where I took numerous modules on general engineering. When it came to coding a self-made robot, I knew engineering could have a big impact on the world!
