You have a broad knowledge and experience of electrical and concept/system development.

  • Master of Science in Electrical or Physics engineering or equivalent

As your future manager, I truly believe that what makes you thrilled going to work will make you successful. That means I will support you in your personal development and help you follow your professional dreams!
