A day for a Process Engineer at Intel can range from spending all day in what we call our 'bunny suits' or space suits as most people would recognise them as or a day of juggling meetings with working on long term projects that have a quality improvement for your product or have a cost saving for the factory. The key thing is to be adaptable, be organised and be able to communicate your plans clearly and concisely. You will be your own boss in many instances as an engineer and it is up to you to get the job done and do it well, while at the same time meeting goals and challenges that are set for the factory.

The great thing about a process engineer at Intel is that much or your work can be done remotely, which means you don't have to sit at your desk all day allowing you to get in to the machines and get stuck in. One should also be aware that you will be continuously learning in this sort of environment. Because our technology is so up to date we are always making changes to make this possible. Our products will range from mobile phone chips to top of the range computer chips so we need to be able to make changes to meet the demands of what the market is looking for.

  Hint: ESB
My job in ESBI involves working in an exciting and dynamic industry with a lot of technical challenges, particularly in relation to climate change. I have been involved in a number of new and emerging technology projects on clean coal power plants, carbon capture technology and biofuels.

One of the best things about my current job is the people I work with, there are a lot of other young people working in my department and there are also plenty of experienced people who are very approachable and always on hand to give some advice and guidance.

The other great thing about my job is that I get an opportunity to travel with my job and have been to South Africa, Germany, Norway, France, Sweden and Pakistan in the last year.
