My internship at AT&S Austria Technologie & Systemtechnik Aktiengesellschaft
Job description: Intern in Advanced Packaging Company: AT&S AG Place: Leoben, Austria Period: February to June 2018 Contact:Patrick Fleischhacker
What I did
I mostly worked on my Bachelor’s thesis for which I developed a wireless sensor node which can communicate with Amazon Alexa. Another task was to thoroughly test embedded components, primarily transistors.
Why I enjoyed my internship
Because I was able to work very independently and try out lots of things.
What I learned
The most important thing is working independently. Away from the secure university environment where there is always a lecturer on hand to help, independent and structured working is very important.
The highlight of the internship
The best experience was when the hardware I had developed communicated with Amazon Alexa for the first time.
How I secured the internship
As I have been awarded the AT&S scholarship on several occasions, I have already worked intensively with this company. I simply applied and was granted the internship.
What I want to do in the future
My next milestone is to complete my Master’s degree in Electronics and Computer Engineering in Kapfenberg. Later, I would like to work on developing electronic circuits and putting them onto a circuit
