Hel­lo, my name is Jana and I am stu­dy­ing in­dus­tri­al en­gi­nee­ring in the fourth se­mes­ter. Cur­r­ent­ly, I am in my prac­ti­cal pha­se, which me­ans I am working in the com­pa­ny and wri­ting my se­cond pro­ject work. In the cour­se of my pro­ject, I was for 3 weeks at our lo­ca­ti­on in Maas­tricht. Here I got an in­sight into the work­flows that we car­ry out du­ring our data ac­qui­si­ti­on. The aim of my vi­sit was to ana­ly­se the work pro­ces­ses and to collect re­qui­re­ments for a new tool. I re­al­ly re­cei­ved a lot of in­for­ma­ti­on which I will now pro­cess in the next step.

The col­leagues in Maas­tricht were (and still are) very friend­ly to me and sup­por­ted me whe­re­ver pos­si­ble. We tal­ked in our com­pa­ny lan­guage Eng­lish, so that was no pro­blem for an­yo­ne. Most of the time I was al­lo­wed to look over the shoul­der of my col­leagues. They glad­ly took the time to ex­p­lain ever­ything to me in de­tail. In my third week I had to or­ga­ni­ze and run a work­shop with the se­ni­ors and group ma­na­gers of Maas­tricht Data Collec­tion. In the evening some of them went out to eat with me in a re­stau­rant in Belgium.

When I wasn’t in the com­pa­ny, I had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to have a clo­ser look at the be­au­ti­ful city of Maas­tricht. I ren­ted an apart­ment right in the cent­re of Maas­tricht, so I could ex­plo­re the city and play it a tou­rist every evening. In or­der to pre­pa­re mys­elf for the com­pa­ny run that ta­kes place on 07/10/19 in Igers­heim, I also used my free time to go jog­ging a litt­le, a ne­ar­by park was per­fect for that.

I am glad that the TecAlliance made this pos­si­ble for me and also put so much trust in me to send me the­re alo­ne. I could re­al­ly gain some ex­pe­ri­ence the­re again and train my English.
