Yifang Wei (ESR1) started the first secondment of the project at beginning of October. In this article he talks about his time at TESAT in Backnang, Germany.
“My two-month secondment at TESAT in Backnang, Germany has been very useful to start the project.
It has been a very good learning experience for me and I am getting to know more about challenges and possible problems during the design process. I have been here for over a month and have rented an apartment in a small town which is 20 minutes by train from the company.
I started working on a company project of high frequency phase shifters with two colleagues. They are very friendly and share a lot of helpful advice with me when working as part of the team. My industry supervisor has had many in-depth talks with me as part of my three-year PhD program plan in the field of Beamforming Network and we have discussed the detailed requirements.
It has been a great opportunity and I have been enjoying the experience of working in a company. In addition, I’m very happy to get to know my industry supervisor and other staff in the company. I enjoy chatting and talking with them and asking questions face to face. I think it has been a very efficient way to start the project.” Yifang Wei, ESR1
