Nicky van Gruijthuijsen, Intern R&D Electromechanics, The Netherlands

Internship: EPLAN Electric P8 Design Exploration

It's great to work for a global brand, such as Vanderlande, which is a leading technological innovator. I’d already heard about them owing to their airport systems, and I am familiar with sorting systems in distribution centres. After my first meeting for an internship, I was delighted to be given an opportunity at Vanderlande’s R&D Electromechanics department.

During my training course, I was involved in many ongoing cases. Not only those that were important to me in the short term, but also in the long term. As a result, I really felt like part of the team and certainly not just a number in the company.

In my current role, I am busy optimising ‘EPLAN Electric P8’. As such, I am developing a new way of drawing electric schemes in which the emphasis is on making efficient use of the central data point of EPLAN Electric P8. My research will lead to a reduction of errors and engineering time, as well as the creation of efficient designs containing a more detailed overview and structure.

In my time at Vanderlande, I have learned a great deal, particularly with regards to meetings, discussing ideas with colleagues, stating my opinion, and networking and management. Another satisfying aspect is the variety of the work. For example, at one time I am researching a specific issue, and another, I am in a meeting or practically involved in the development of a new function.

I have enjoyed my time at Vanderlande immensely and learned about electrical hardware engineering, planning, and problem-solving, as well as improving my EPLAN Electric P8 skills.
