Project Summary: I will be working for Dürr System AG in Bietigheim Bissingen, Baden Württemberg, Germany, a small town near Stuttgart. I will join the company as an intern in the Manufacturing Execution Systems & Controls Team.
How did W&L prepare you for this opportunity? The “Words of Wisdom” event of the German department made me aware of this opportunity. Dr. Sprenkle’s Algorithm Design class helped me to prepare for the interviews.

Post-graduation Plans: I don’t know yet.
How will this opportunity help you achieve your goals? The internship serves as a complement of my W&L education in Computer Science because I will get to use the programming skills in a professional context.
