A degree, then onwards ...
Andreas Geiger is working enthusiastically towards the goal. Or rather, two goals: the one he plays towards at the football club, and the goal of completing his master’s degree, on which he has been working at Bertrandt since 2018. Here, this energy technology student is engaged with battery cooling for electric vehicles – the subject of his dissertation. To complete the work, he has in total around half a year, during which he is able to link the theory learnt at the University of Reutlingen perfectly with its practical applications at Bertrandt.
“When looking for a topic for my dissertation, I was completely free to choose, but it was a lucky chance that there was a place advertised at Bertrandt in my preferred subject, battery cooling.” Andreas Geiger already has his BA – he completed it in Pforzheim in the field of mechanical engineering with a focus on product development. Learning practical knowledge and the basic rules of scientific work has created the best possible conditions for his Master’s studies.
And now, everything is going to plan on the practical side. “Here at Bertrandt, I feel fully supported and am learning more each day,” Andreas Geiger says gladly, commenting on the excellent conditions for work. This is no surprise: there is always someone there to help, and his team leader and head of department also give all the support they can. “We are a young, open team here in which everyone helps everyone. Above all, the working atmosphere is really good. As a new member, I felt very welcome.”
During the application process, he already sensed that he had applied to the right employer. “After my online application, everything went very quickly. A call-back, telephone interview, personal interview, contract – it all went perfectly smoothly.”
Alongside the interesting topic and the innovative work environment, he was also particularly attracted by the exceptionally good prospects at Bertrandt. His goal is to enter the company directly after graduating – something that was already discussed at interview. This would be the best follow-up he could think of for his degree.
