More Internship Reports from EUROTECH and EUROBIZ Students in Germany

We continue to feature short portraits of EUROBIZ and EUROTECH students who are currently in Germany and have successfully secured their internships for the second half of their stay. Our two portraits present Quentin Walliser who is working for Mahle, and Michael Calvert who is working for Siemens Energy. Here’s what they report back:

“My name is Quentin, I spent my first semester in Germany studying at the University of Tübingen, which I would greatly recommend both for the location and culture, but also for the education. The foreign language courses especially were amazing. Now I am continuing my time abroad with an internship at Mahle in Stuttgart. Mahle is one of the biggest companies in the area earning over 1 billion Euros in sales per month and it is a leading international development partner and supplier to the automotive industry, as well as a pioneer for the mobility of the future. I am an intern in the Corporate Controlling Reporting department, and my main responsibilities are to develop new reporting dashboards using SAP systems. Getting knowledge in the use of SAP, the leader in business applications, is a great opportunity. The atmosphere in the company is also great, and we have very flexible working hours, a great cafeteria, and I am working directly next to the Stuttgart Zoo, the Wilhelma. I was able to get a season pass for only 42 Euros, and we can even hear the monkeys from the office, it makes for a great way to relax with a walk before going home. I started on March 1st and will be working until August 25th.”

“Hi everyone my name is Michael Calvert. I am a EUROTECH Student at UConn who studies Mechanical Engineering and German Studies. I have recently completed one semester at Universität Heidelberg and have just begun a 5-month internship with Siemens Energy. I am working in the field of materials science with a focus on gas turbine applications. Siemens Energy is a global company with a strong focus on sustainable, globally available, and clean energy. I am proud to be in a position where I can learn from the industry leaders in such a relevant and modern field thanks to my studies in the EUROTECH program.”
