About me

Unlike the most students with bachelor?s degree, my knowledge is not restricted to theoretical concerns. Instead I started with a practice-based vocational training, followed by an employment as industry mechanic. During that employment I attained University entrance level at a technical school over four years by studying three evenings per week. Even though, final degree at a technical school is equivalent to a bachelor?s degree in Germany, I felt the need to further improve my knowledge at the University while still working for my company. During my studies I was an active member of the Running Snail Racing Team, which is a student group at the technical university OTH Amberg-Weiden. Particularly, I worked as one of the team leaders during the season 15/16 and was responsible for technical team management and handles quotes, process management and project and work distribution.
