I work at Virtual Manufacturing AB in Gothenburg, Sweden as a Robotics Consultant. I usually start work at around 8:00. Most of the day's work starts with receiving critical challenges from a client. Then my colleagues and I brainstorm around the solutions and start working on methodology. I work with BIW Process Planning as well as Robot & PLC Programming.
My job at Virtual Manufacturing AB is my first job after graduation from the Master’s Programme in Robotics and Automation. I chose to study at University West because of its profile in Work Integrated Learning and its research reputation in the field of flexible industrial automation.
University West was a good choice for me because of the balanced course structure which involves a combination of theory and hands-on projects. The university’s ‘learning-by-doing’ approach helped me to foresee real-time challenges which can occur in an industrial environment. Hands-on projects with robots and Programme Logic Control (PLC) helped me to understand the bigger picture of the complete process. Also, the very well-equipped Production Technology Center (PTC) helped me to test my knowledge with equipment instantly.
