Dipl.-Ing. Gerrit Kropp

„During my industry internship, in October 2008, "Industrial Electronics and Measurement Technology (IEM)“ has been my first step at IMMS. After that I became a research fellow in the fields of Circuit Design and PCB Design. From August 2009, I finished my studies in Electrical Engineering writing a diploma thesis on "Conception, Set-Up and Application of a Modular Test System for Quality Assessment in the Semiconductor Industry". After defending the thesis with very good results under supervision by Prof. Sommer and Ingo Gryl, since April 2010, I have been a research assistant at IMMS. In this position, I am also responsible for hardware development for modular testing systems. For me, there are many reasons to stay at IMMS: On the one hand, the topics in industrial electronics and measurement technology (IEM) are roughly the same as my personal interests. On the other hand, chances are that I can advance professionally and systematically. This for sure is an advantage for my professional career. Furthermore, the close relationship of research and industrial applications provides an important connection of my work to practical issues. But the most important reason for me is: Working in this team is simply fun!“
