Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

We asked Kerrie Horan from Intel to give some advice for people considering this job:

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.

Chinese tech powerhouse Huawei is expanding its Dublin, Cork and Athlone operations and in turn creating 20 new jobs in Cork as part of a €17.7m investment in its growing R&D department in Ireland.

The announcement came from Huawei’s deputy chair Guo Ping saying “We are continuing to tap into Ireland’s growing clusters of video, artificial intelligence, cloud, telecoms and technology businesses, nurturing future talent and providing additional new opportunities for highly skilled professionals”.

These developments bring Huawei’s R&D investment in Ireland to $21m (€17.7m) in 2017. A new research facility in Trinity is also confirmed with cooperation with TCD, it will focus on video intelligence and how the emerging area of artificial intelligence will impact society. It will be supported by the Huawei R&D team in Dublin.

 Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is pleased with the announcement by saying “The company’s new research partnership with Trinity, and its expanding R&D footprint across its Dublin, Cork and Athlone operations, are a strong endorsement of Ireland’s tech credentials and illustrates Huawei’s ongoing commitment to its Irish operations,” and “Bilateral trade between Ireland and China is now worth over €12bn each year and, by strengthening our links with companies like Huawei, we can increase this further in the years ahead.”
