Interview with the Mechatronics alumnus Jan Schattner
What in your studies do you think back to most fondly? On the one hand, I remember learning together with fellow students, for example in the library, and on the other hand, I remember the practical applications and experiments both in my studies and in the practical phases as part of my dual studies.
What do you do in your job today? I am a team leader for control engineering at Löwenstein Medical Technology, a manufacturer of ventilators.
To what extent did your studies prepare you for your current profession? The study program has prepared me professionally, so that I not only know the methods, but also know how to critically question them. Above all, however, it is a structured way of thinking and a methodical approach that I have internalized through my studies.
What would you like to pass on to future students? Try different things, question the connections to understand them and don't give up too quickly. A high frustration tolerance is also a learning for me from my studies.
Jan Schattner studied mechatronics at TUHH in both his bachelor's and master's degrees.
