Statement from a mechatronics graduate


Name: Simon Koch
Company: Siemens Schweiz AG
Role: Project engineer

«The three industrial placements in different companies made getting on to the career ladder considerably easier. In my job, I benefit from my experience of managing mechatronic projects, where the interplay of electronics and mechanics comes into full effect. Through software engineering, I also learnt to structure tasks and processes clearly. Furthermore, engineers with good languages skills are highly sought after in the international environment!»
