Electrical Engineering and Information Technology graduate

I made a lot of new friends from the networking part of the program. Meeting interesting people changes your habits, making you more open-minded.

Florian Schwarz

Power Engineering student

No two days are the same. One day I’ll do practical work like preparing some cables or taking measurements; the next I’ll be working on computer simulations. So it’s completely different. And that’s what I like.

Justus Raecker

Electrical Engineering student

I started at Siemens and at university at the same time. So I got hands on experience here and then studied the theory at university, which was a great combination.

Katrin Seeger

Systems Engineering student

I really enjoy my position here because it’s the biggest job I’ve had so far. I get to work at a huge plant in Poland, and go on site and see everything, which is the most fun I’ve had.
