Design engineer - at KAUP since September 2003
"I started my "KAUP career" with an apprenticeship as a technical draughtsperson - today it would be called technical product designer. But I wanted to go even deeper into mechanical engineering and therefore I additionally did an appropriate degree. The best thing for me was that KAUP made an effort for me the whole time and made it clear that I was always welcome. As a result, the contact was never broken. Completely the opposite. During the holidays, I was always able to apply my theoretical knowledge in practice at KAUP. Therefore, it was obvious for me that I wanted to return completely to KAUP after my degree: a step that I have never regretted.
As a mechanical engineer, today I work in the new developments of our attachments. A varied role where I can always see what I have developed: from the idea for a new attachment, via the development and design to production. It is typical for KAUP that I not only get a lot of responsibility, but also a large amount of input - across all levels and not only from my own department. And despite our size and the possibilities, KAUP still has a friendly atmosphere and is clearly structured. Everybody knows everybody, you are treated as a person and not as a number."
