Taking the next step with Inwatec
With our focus on education and our passion for offering possibilities in various fields for young talents, we are proud and thrilled to introduce three #laundrynerds that you might have seen before. All three of them have been part of Inwatec for one year or even longer, but have now made the next step in their careers.
“It was the plan from the beginning, that if there was a job that I would fit, I should work full time. And I’m very happy how things worked out.“ (Nicolai)
Nicolai started in fall 2017 and mostly supported Inwatec with the PLC software for one of our mat rolling machines while studying Automation Engineering. Before his studies, he finished his first education as an electrician. Since the 1st of August, he is now a full-time Service Engineer within our software team. That still includes software development for our mat rolling machines, but he is also responsible for a large part of the service tasks we receive from our customers including service calls and installations. He therefore also tests our machines before they are sent out.
Part of the team for one and a half years now, Benjamin joined Inwatec in April 2018 to prepare for his studies of Technology Management and Marine Engineering that began half a year later. When he started, his work included assembling machines and different other tasks coming up in our workshop. With the beginning of a mandatory apprenticeship within his studies (that he takes at Inwatec) his tasks shifted to a mix of project support and workshop tasks. Benjamin is planning on continuing his work after the apprenticeship as a student assistant and is aiming to become a Project Manager once he finishes his degree.
Laus, the youngest in terms of his time at Inwatec, was studying Robot Systems – Advanced Robotics Technology at SDU when he joined as a student assistant in July 2018. He supported us in various software development tasks and it did not take him long to find an interesting topic for his master project – the development of AI to find the best gripping areas of laundry items (read more). We were glad to enable him finding a topic of interested that at the same time helped Inwatec exploring new ways of using AI. At the beginning of September Laus started his full-time contract as Software Developer complementing the #laundrynerds software team in a new role.
“When I started at Inwatec, I didn’t have a plan for what I was going to do or where I was going to be after my studies. Inwatec seemed like a good place to get some experience working with automation, as well as starting my transition from doing studies to being in a working environment. During my time as a student worker, I was introduced to the idea of staying here after finishing my studies, and since it seemed like the right thing to do for me, I gladly ended up taking the offer.”
It is always rewarding to see young people developing in such a short time and growing both personally and professionally. We are glad that you will continue being #laundrynerds and we are looking forward to a fruitful and joyful future together with you, Benjamin, Laus & Nicolai!
