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.

Students on this new course will explore their own creative strengths. The first year will focus on investigating and generating ideas through a wide range of drawing and mark-making methods. Students will also explore fashion trends and will be taught how to assemble mood boards and product boards. A sketchbook will be required at all times and will be assessed as part of the students’ personal development. 

There is a fashion design project in each of the three years, which is very much concept-driven. In the first year, this project involves the making of a prototype through paper or the re-design of an existing garment. In the second year the emphasis will be on designing a marketable fashion product – this may be a garment or a fashion accessory, it could be a range of fabrics / wallpapers / soft furnishings. At this stage the student will have defined their own niche in the fashion market and will focus on strengthening their chosen career path with the guidance of expert staff into their third and final year. Fashion history and culture supports and contextualises the studio practice throughout the programme.

Photography and moving image will be taught as it is used and required by the fashion industry and to promote the students individual products through media channels. Photography is taught in first year and in addition to formal projects, students are expected to treat the camera as an extension to their sketchbook, gathering inspiration and generating ideas throughout the three years. Moving image is taught from second year and will add to an exciting range of skills through which the student can pitch their product.

The visual identity, branding and packaging of the product along with expertise in retailing and marketing, will ensure that the student takes their product to market in the most professional, cost effective and contemporary manner.
