Next time I want to be a spaceship commandant. Yeah!
Since I finished my studies in telecommunications engineering at the Technical University of Cologne (formerly Cologne University of Applied Sciences), I have worked in different fields of mechanical and plant engineering such as radiation measurement, non-destructive materials testing, polyurethane technology, vacuum metallurgy, and heat treatment of metals, in development and design, as well as in service and commissioning.
Since 1999 I have been working as a software engineer in special plant engineering, particularly in the design of industrial furnaces. My tasks include, inter alia, designing complex plant control systems, developing control and visualization software, and commissioning plants within and outside Germany.
It had always been my dream, which I have now fullfiled, to acquire a university degree. In October 2010 I gained admission to the University of Hagen to study for a master’s degree in electrical engineering and information technology in the School of Mathematics and Information Science with a specialization in mechatronics. I successfully completed the course in September 2013 with the grade “excellent”.
