Jeremias Döffinger never takes his eye off the road – neither in his work for the voluntary fire service, nor in his vehicle technology studies in Karlsruhe. And even as an intern, writing his bachelor’s dissertation in the firm, both he and his colleagues took the scouts’ motto to heart: “be prepared”. With a pager in his pocket he is ready for anything. “But at the moment, luckily, there’s not too much going on out there. This means I can concentrate on my internship and my dissertation.”
“After just a few weeks in the company, I can say that my internship is great fun and is helping me advance. Above all because the colleagues in my team are not just young and friendly, but also help you with every question.” Always being there when you are needed is of course natural to him. Already at his interview he realised that he would get along well with his colleagues and enjoy the atmosphere at the firm. “It was much more easy-going and comfortable than I imagined at first. Also, we already spoke about concrete topics for my dissertation; Bertrandt turned out to be particularly flexible.”
His dissertation concerns a new tool for the construction software CATIA, designed to make a task previously carried out manually faster, easier and more secure in future. This topic naturally requires a particular interest in and talent for the field of IT. “And, of course, for everything to do with cars,” he adds.
He is gaining practical experience in a team that is engaged in constructing high-voltage batteries for electric vehicles and belongs to the EEE department – Electromobility Electronics Evolution. This is one of the big, promising trends that particularly interests him. And the future is of especial concern to him. That is why, as a youth worker at the fire brigade, he is engaged in helping along the next generation. To make sure tomorrow is safer than today.
