Why did you want a scholarship with Calnex?

I wanted both experience and to better understand my own preferences for making decisions about the future. When researching companies, I wanted to find companies which offered varied opportunities with subjects in my course. Calnex matches these requirements well.

What type of work have you been involved with during your summer placement?

During my summer placement, I mainly worked on schematics, which for me was good revision and improvement of the software I use at university. I learned a lot about how a team of people within a company works and processes such as revision control and other important aspects like proper documentation.

What do you enjoy outside of work?

Apart from technology I am interested in nature and playing music. I have been playing viola for over ten years in various orchestras and enjoy improving my playing and socialising with like-minded people. I like to improve my German too as I have family in Bavaria.
