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.

Irish Music Industry Contributes Over 700m to Irish Economy

A new report commissioned by the Irish Music Rights Organisation (IMRO) and produced by Deloitte, has found that the overall contribution of the music industry in Ireland stands at €703 million with employment at over 13,000. 

The report underlines the opportunity for further growth in the sector through the development of a National Music Strategy, rooted in four key action areas:

  • Coordination & collaboration through the establishment of a cross-Government music grouping to work with a cross sectoral Industry Advisory Panel to address barriers to growth in the sector;
  • Concentration on copyright to help ensure a fair return for music creators, crucial at a time when the music copyright landscape has changed utterly as a result of technology and the industry is under threat from the extremely low level of return to writers and performers, from platform services;
  • Creative skills development through advanced training and education services that will ensure musicians realise their potential, and that the ‘business of music’ is understood;
  • Compensation that is adequate to address income uncertainty associated with work in the creative and cultural industries – perhaps the single greatest barrier faced by entrepreneurs in the sector.

Eleanor McEvoy, Chairperson of IMRO said, "I am pleased to present this report and to further shine a light on our members’ contribution – those music creators who write and perform musical works – to Ireland’s economy. If we are to continue to maintain and grow the success of Ireland’s music industry, and increase its economic and social contribution, now is the time for the development of a National Music Strategy.”
