What are the main opportunities you identify in your optoelectronics-related field in terms of career development?
In terms of process optimization, it is not sufficient to design efficient machines or to gather and store data in an efficient way, but it is also crucial to process this data using the proper techniques in order to draw the right conclusions. Therefore, it is more and more important that data scientists and software engineers work hand in hand with “classical” engineers.
