At Fluidan, we believe in supporting university students in their academic and professional growth. Therefore, we select students for a one-semester internship who have an aptitude and interest in working with the innovation of RheoStream. The outcome is a positive learning experience for all involved!

Our most recent interns are Henrik and Rune. Rune is studying electrical engineering at DTU and is developing a new PCB (printed circuit board) with sensor and actuator-related electronics. Henrik is a computer engineering student at DTU and is doing remote instrument overviewing and software related to Rune’s new PCB. In other words, Henrik’s focus is software, while Rune’s focus is hardware. Together, they will innovate RheoStream’s hardware and software. Welcome aboard, Henrik and Rune!

Which industry does your educational background impact?

When working with modern electronics, there is almost always both hardware and software involved. When creating a new product, these two things must work together. Aligning software and hardware is where computer engineers come into play, with knowledge within computer science and electronic engineering, to help integrate software and hardware.

What inspired you to pursue computer engineering?

I have throughout my whole life had a fascination with computers. As with many who go into computer engineering, it starts with computer games, but in my case, it further developed into an interest in all computer software and hardware. This interest led me to seek new knowledge within this field continually, and in the process, explore a lot of software and hardware—my interest in computers more recently developed into a more general interest in electronics. Wanting to explore the development side of this field led me to study computer engineering at DTU.

How does your educational background relate to your work at Fluidan?

There are several areas within the field of developing electronics where computer engineers are needed. Internet of things is one of such domains that has relatively recently seen a tremendous amount of growth and is something that Fluidan also wants to explore. This area is the perfect match for a computer engineer as it employs both software and hardware as part of respectively the “Internet” and “things” aspects of it.

Has your computer engineering background influenced your life? If so, how?

I wouldn’t say that my educational background has influenced my life tremendously, but it has certainly given me some knowledge to apply to my hobbies. My hobby is playing around with electronics like consumer electronics, but I sometimes delve into more advanced projects involving digital electronics. I also like fiddling around with all kinds of software, especially software running on Linux systems. Lately, this has also turned towards more server-oriented software, which piqued my interest during an elective course I took last year.

What are you looking forward to during your internship at Fluidan?

I am looking forward to working with something more related to the “real world.” When we do projects at DTU, we imagine a real scenario and try to find some problem to solve, which somewhat emulates real-life, but it will be quite nice to work on something that gives real value.

Which industry does your electrical engineering background impact?

One of the most important reasons for choosing an education in Electrical Engineering is the innovative technology and hardware development. Technology is continually improving, becoming smaller and faster, and one of my most important reasons for choosing this line of work is to be part of the future technology. 

What inspired you to pursue electrical engineering?

I have worked with electronic design for many years, as a hobby and professionally. I love the mathematics and the design procedure when designing innovative hardware for various applications. For as long as I can remember, my hobby has always been electronics. I use a lot of my free time during this lock-down period to further my understanding of newer technologies and mathematics. I also spend time with my friends, girlfriend, and family.

How does your educational background relate to your work at Fluidan?

At Fluidan, they use various hardware platforms as a core part of their instruments. Being an electrical engineer, I can help improve the overall system performance and help the company design the next generation of hardware platforms for their devices.

Has electrical engineering influenced your life? If so, how?

I have worked with electronics for many years. I started my electronics journey when I was about ten years old. Disassembling old intel computers, programming 8051 CPU’s in assembly language, fiddling with different TTL and CMOS logic, and much more. I have, in all sense, been working with electronics my whole life.

What are you looking forward to in your new position at Fluidan?

I look forward to helping Fluidan improve and design their latest generation of RheoStream instruments and be part of an engineering and administration team furthering the expansion of Fluidan’s products onto the industrial market.
