Why I chose Partner Electronics

Electronics, with its rapid evolution, has always piqued my interest. Living in a tech-driven world, keeping pace with digital advancements is both challenging and empowering. From life-saving medical devices to smart home innovations through IoT, the realm of electronics is vast and fascinating. The convergence of hardware and software in embedded systems blends the strengths of both to spur endless innovation.

Why did you want a scholarship with Partner Electronics?

Partner Electronics presented an unmatched opportunity to experience real-world tech applications first-hand. The diverse projects and the firsthand client interactions were key attractions for me. The scholarship was more than just a learning platform; it was a window into a workspace where every decision echoes in tangible outcomes. Direct engagements with clients provided a fresh perspective, especially on the business side of design.

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

Over my two-month stint, the variety of tasks kept things intriguing. Transitioning a board from BeagleBone to Raspberry Pi Pico was a blend of hardware intricacies and C coding. Setting up tests with client-given components, I ensured paramount electrical safety. These experiences were monumental in bridging theory with practice, emphasizing the essence of teamwork, in-depth documentation, and putting clients at the forefront.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Away from electronics, I’ve poured hours into Judo, even snagging a national championship under my black belt. MMA and Jiu-Jitsu have been exciting detours in my martial arts journey. Recently, salsa has taken center stage, with competition being the cherry on top. Languages? They’re a bridge to myriad cultures, and I’m all in. And for a strategic unwind, it’s chess for me. Not to forget, I’ve got a knack for stitching together memorable social gatherings.
