“I have been employed as a designer at Aspöck Systems since May 2014. This is the first company I have worked at since completing my school-leaving certificate. After my primary education, I completed my studies at the HTBLA (Technical College) in Andorf, focussed on plastics and environmental technology”.
Which tasks does your job comprise, and which important characteristics are needed for your field of activity?
“In my position as a designer, I work a lot in projects concerning the further development and development of products, as well as their plastic and tool compatible design. Amongst other things, I deal with surface modelling and concept preparation whilst adhering to many norms and standards.
Technical know-how in the field of plastics processing, which I have brought with me thanks to my training, and a good sense of spatial awareness are essential in Design. As we are an internationally active company, excellent English skills are a prerequisite.
Software know-how, in particular CATIA, is important because we mainly use this program to create our drawings.”
