I have always been interested in how all kinds of electronics and machinery work. Therefore I was very interested when given the opportunity to come to Prodrive Technologies to work on the development of active magnetic bearings. As it is a fairly new technology, most of my time is spent doing literature research on the topic, but since there are still a lot of gaps in the available research, it is necessary for me to break down the problem to its most basic elements. This has given me a lot of insight into not only this specific topic, but electromagnetics in general. This is largely aided by the fact that I am guided and surrounded by colleagues that are very experienced in this field. The flat hierarchy present at Prodrive Technologies makes it very easy to casually approach anyone for help. As such, I view my internship here as a very valuable experience from which I’ve learned a lot, and hope to learn even more in the future.
