Sensirion Students TechDay
After the successful launch of Sensirion Students TechDay in October 2018, Sensirion recently organized a second event on March 20, 2019. The event took place at the Sensirion headquarters in Staefa, Zurich. Several students joined our experienced specialists for a day and dived into the world of sensor technology by tackling complex challenges using creativity and technical know-how.
Sensirion is constantly striving to integrate new technologies into its existing products and to develop new sensor solutions within its core competencies. The aim of the Students TechDay was to develop an idea for a sensor and to create a business model canvas for it. The students worked in a team supported by an experienced engineer and presented their idea to a selected audience.
The company presentation as well as the tour of the Sensirion headquarters provide them with the information needed for the project. During the networking reception, the opportunity was given to learn more about Sensirion and career opportunities.

Wearables measuring stress, emotions and moods are an emerging trend. Autonomous driving for example require knowledge of a human being's emotional state or comfort feeling. A very sensitive relative humidity sensor can detect the perspiration level. Thus, it is possible to detect emotions by measuring the sweat evaporated from a human's Skin. Explore now.
