My greatest success / My greatest experience so far
I managed to switch on a laser beam in a billionth of a second and then switch it off again in the next billionth. And I can prove that, of course. . ;-)
How I found my current job
I was fascinated by the projects carried out at the Institute of Electronic Engineering while I was still studying. I was able to do some research for my Master's thesis there and was then offered the opportunity to continue my work as a researcher at the Institute.
What I learned for this job during my studies
I can use and apply pretty much all of the technical knowledge I have acquired during my studies in my job.
Job prospects in my field
In addition to working as a researcher, FH JOANNEUM also offers me the opportunity to get into teaching and possibly become a lecturer. This is made possible by the long professional experience I gathered before I started studying: as a late starter I didn't go to university until I was 32 to harness my true potential.

How I see my future
Although I'm practically never bored with research, I plan to extend my range and try my hand at teaching next year. Not only because I want to share my fundamental knowledge with the next generation but also to consolidate and further develop myself in my profession.
