    EPF Lausanne (PhD Physik)

    I was born in Munich. I spent my 11th grade at an American high school close to Atlanta. After my Abitur, I completed my obligatory civil service. Following this important experience, I studied Physics at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. During this time, I had the opportunity to stay abroad at the Lunds University in Sweden and the Columbia University in New York City. In parallel to my Physics Diploma (German equivalent to M.Sc.), I earned a degree in Technology Management from the Technical University of Munich. My academic achievements as well as my political activities were rewarded by scholarships of the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the Bavarian Elite Academy. I gathered practical experience at Truma GmbH, the European Space Agency, Solon Management Consulting and the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information. Besides, I participated in business plan competitions, winning the Ideas Stage of the Munich Business Plan Competition and the Award for the Best National Business Idea at the Heidelberger Innovation Forum. After my studies, I decided to deepen my expertise in science and technology by pursuing doctoral studies. I attended the Doctoral School of Physics at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and graduated end of 2014. Subject of my studies were field-effect transistors based on monolayers of molybdenite, one of the thinnest semiconducting materials known. Due to its molecular tenuity and large electronic bandgap, the material holds great promise for prospect extremely scaled, flexible and transparent electronic and optoelectronic devices. Attending the MBA program of Collège des Ingénieurs allows me to link my technical expertise with additional experience in business and management. The effective combination of these competences is crucial for the success of any technology company, especially in today's rapidly moving, competitive environment. My hobbies include politics, skiing and hiking.

  • DarmstadtMagnus DARMSTADT

    RWTH Aachen / Tsinghua University (Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen Maschinenbau)

    Looking for a general scientific background, I started studying Business Administration and Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in 2008. In order to apply the material I learned, I worked at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering at the university, where I was involved in research and industry projects. As part of my academic curriculum, I sought out the possibility to supplement my studies with industrial experience abroad. Hence I was working for the Robert Bosch Group in Juarez, Mexico, and El Paso, USA, during the end of my bachelor studies.

    While being enrolled in a double degree program during my Master studies, I attended courses at RWTH Aachen University and at Tsinghua University in Beijing. As the content of my Master classes in business were very general, I looked to focus my technical skills more on the production area by choosing specialist Engineering courses. During my two semesters in China I not only deepened my academic knowledge in both fields, but I also established advanced Chinese language skills. At the end of my studies I was employed with ifp consulting in Munich. There I have worked in consultancy projects and developed my Master thesis in the context of "smart factory".

    Getting to know different cultures and learning new languages has always been my passion. Before my studies I had already lived in Spain and France. The CDI is not only a great opportunity to connect with people of different backgrounds and different countries, but also to gain more practical knowledge in economics and management. Therefore I am carrying out my MBA mission at the BMW Group in Munich, working in the purchasing department.

    RWTH Aachen (Energietechnik)

    I was born in 1988 and grew up in Bonn, Germany's former capital. After the school curriculum, which included half a year at a high school in New Zealand, I started studying Mechanical Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in 2008. I chose this specific subject because I have always been fascinated by analysing technical problems and finding satisfying solutions. I also favoured the subject because it later opens up a wide range of possibilities for a professional career. Besides its very good reputation the RWTH provides a large spectrum for specialisation; therefore I selected Energy Engineering with a focus on renewable energies and supply infrastructures as my consecutive Master studies in 2013.

    Since I have always been very interested in the application of my theoretical knowledge to practical problems I worked during my time at the university with various companies on different topics. At the Institute for Fluid Power Drives and Controls (IFAS) of RWTH Aachen University I researched scientific methods to predict the ageing behaviour of lubricants. During an internship at Vattenfall Europe Innovation GmbH I dealt with projects regarding electric mobility and wrote my Bachelor thesis there about a test draft for inductive charging of electric vehicles. In order to improve my structuring and presenting skills and to learn more about consultancy I worked for Dornier Management Consulting GmbH and Accenture GmbH. Finally I wrote my Master thesis at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University about fluid properties for an energy- and resource-efficient machine tool.

    By taking part in the MBA program of the Collège des Ingénieurs I want to broaden my horizon on economic aspects as well as to build a network of current and future executives . During my mission in Frankfurt I plan to optimise the coordination of the international maintenance performed by Lufthansa Technik.
