Roche PVT in Waiblingen is one of Roche’s competence centers for the development and production of laboratory automation systems and offers engineers a wide range of career opportunities. We spoke to systems engineer Sanae about the engineering profession and the career opportunities in this area at Roche PVT.
Sanae, you work at Roche in Waiblingen as a systems engineer. What fascinates you about the engineering profession?
I already loved “working” with my hands and creating things myself as a little child. As a result, I got an idea relatively early on that a career in engineering could be ideal for me. Later, at school, the subject that interested me most was mathematics, which reinforced my plans.
At university, I quickly developed a passion for simulation and scientific computing. I love solving everyday problems together with others in agile teams, be that in a creative way or numerically with the help of mathematics. Both of these passions have stayed with me to this day.
As a systems engineer, the employment market obviously offers you a wide range of options in various sectors. Why did you choose a job in medical technology in particular?
After I completed my university degree, I did an internship in medical technology in the field of robotics, where my responsibilities included optimizing robot deployments in medical operations. I discovered my interest in this field during this internship and then applied for a position at Roche in Waiblingen after I graduated.
