Programming support by two young talents
At Inwatec, we always strive to support young talents. Especially during their education, many skilled students are searching for ways to implement their knowledge. This summer, we are happy to welcome Mustafa and Laus to our team!
Mustafa – Software Assistant
Mustafa Hekmat Al Abdelamir is 15 years old and recently started as a programming assistant at Inwatec. He is attending school at the 9th grade of the Danish primary school system.
We got to know Mustafa during a three-day school internship in May 2018. Already from the start, he did a great job, which is why we offered him a small student position to support our programming team, starting in June. Currently, Mustafa is training the Artificial Intelligence of our X-ray system. He is labeling X-ray scans from the installed machines to help the machine learn new patterns.
“It’s great working here, the people are nice and the work environment is really good”, Mustafa explains.
In his free time, Mustafa likes to meet friends and play video games. Sometimes, Mustafa even does his own experimental computer graphics and plays around with 3D-programs. However, most fun for him is to spend “all nighters” with a bigger group of friends. Originally, Mustafa is from Southern Iraq but already moved to Denmark at the age of 4.
Laus – Student Assistant in Robot Engineering
Laus Skovgård Bigum joined Inwatec at the beginning of July as a student assistant and supports the software development for our machines.
Laus is 23 years old and was born in Roerslev, a small town outside Middelfart. He moved to Odense for his Bachelor’s studies in Robotics which he started in 2014. Laus is studying to be a civil engineer in Robotics at the University of Southern Denmark in Odense and this fall, he will start working on his Master’s thesis, in collaboration with Inwatec.
“I like it a lot here. It is challenging in a good way and I learn so much from it. It will be cool to be a part of the fast development of the company and industry.”
Apart from his interest in robotics, Laus has a strong passion for both listening as well as playing music. He has been playing guitar, piano, and bass since he was eight years old, and regularly plays concerts with various bands.
In the past years, Laus already worked in different student jobs, such as at the university’s student service for IT and as a music teacher at an elementary school. Now, he is glad to be working in a field, which is more related and relevant to his studies:
“It is really cool to apply the knowledge from my studies. Although there are some practical aspects at the university, I feel like it has been primarily theoretical, so the work I will be doing now will take that knowledge into practice. I look forward to having a great time and learning a lot here.”
