From writing Bachelor Project to being a Student Worker
Patrick Friis Petersen joined us as a student programmer mid of August. Patrick is 23 years old and was born and raised in Hvidovre, a suburb of Copenhagen.
He is currently studying Robotic Systems at University of Southern Denmark in Odense. Patrick recently finished his Bachelor’s programme and is now continuing with his Master’s in the same field.
We got to know Patrick during his last semester of his Bachelor’s studies, where he, together with Frederik, another of our student programmers, worked on their final Bachelor’s project and wrote the Bachelor’s thesis in collaboration with Inwatec.
In his free time, Patrick loves to cook and he jokes: “I spend most of my day wondering what I’ll have for dinner!”
Patrick is happy to now have a student job, which is more related to his studies: “Previously, I have worked at a call center as technical support and customer service. At Inwatec, I am currently working on the interface for an automated bagging-machine.”
He likes his tasks at Inwatec and is happy about the comfortable working environment. “It’s challenging, as the work I do here actually has an impact for the company. But also a great experience and unlimited coffee is a HUGE plus!” Patrick is already keen on seeing the results of his of his new projects. “I look forward to implementing my code on the machines, and being able to say ‘I made it do that!”
