Our design engineer apprentice Lucca Wirz is in his third year of his apprenticeship at Sensirion. As a design engineer, Lucca develops plant facilities for in-house production and assists his team in the design of new sensors. For example, he recently engineered a system with which the leak of the new mass flow controllers can be tested and verified during production. Planning and organization are important in his work, as are creativity and innovative spirit. This is what part of Lucca's work in production consists of. He sets the framework conditions and defines the specifications for new production facilities. After this, he drafts an in-depth plan on his computer. He then uses the draft as a basis for formulating a comprehensive strategy, thereby ensuring that no problems arise during the assembly phase.
Social events bring employees closer together and motivate everybody to give 100% in their day-to-day work.
Lucca enjoys the fact that Sensirion arranges many different excursions and events for the whole company. He finds the atmosphere at Sensirion extremely pleasant and relaxed, and he enjoys working in his team very much.
Lucca recently completed an internship in our electronics division. By the end of the internship, he was able to build an amplifier for a guitar. The plan is for Lucca to complete another internship in the software division at a later point during his apprenticeship, which will give him a basic knowledge of the programming language Python. After his design engineering training is over, Lucca wants to study physics at ETH Zurich. But until then he's more than happy to be at Sensirion.
