It was finally time! From March 3rd till March 13th, they held the annual motor show in Geneva with all the sexiest cars you can imagine! It needed to be done, so I rushed to Switzerland to be part of this exhibition and drool all over the new models. You are probably asking, “But cars cause smog in cities and global warming. Why would you go see something that will basically cause the end of humanity?” Ok, that was a bit extreme, but of course I had to go see the new Tesla Model X and the hydrogen and hybrid cars. The age of innovative cars is upon us! And of course, Pagani, Lotus and Aston Martin are simply awesome. We at IBARE 14 sure love us some sexy cars that run on green fuel.
I am sure we have all dreamed of having a private jet, an armored car or a teleportation device. It may seem more like a dream than reality to us students at the moment. However, those things are actually more within reach than you think! Except for the teleportation device (I am still waiting for you, NASA). Therefore, I will pull you into the world of armored cars, to make it become less of a fantasy and turn it more into a tangible, close-to-home reality. No, this is not an article about how to become rich very quickly; otherwise I wouldn’t be a student. You guessed it: it’s another interview!
As it should be for us renewable energy students, we went with Mr. Roland Schnell to the Grüne Woche, or International Green Week, in January this year. We just had to go try all the different free food samples from different countries. Wait, I mean we wanted to go see the bioenergy section and wood pellet heaters. But all jokes aside, the bioenergy section was very interesting. We managed to get so much information that we could write a whole essay worth 20 pages, which turned out to be our class project in the end. Either way, we learned so many new things we didn’t even know were possible that we went home a little less dumb.
New year has finally arrived and many of us have probably set new goals for 2016, whether it be finishing that book you started ages ago or finally signing up for that theater class. Mine was to finally finish the blog post of my journey to Thailand.
a study trip to Yale University, one of the most renowned universities in the world, offers a terrific opportunity to further develop personally, professionally and linguistically. You can establish friendships with people from all over the world and make important contacts for your professional development. From this personal experience report, you can learn what a study trip to Yale can look like and what you should keep in mind while there. Enjoy reading it.
As a Renewable Energies student at SRH, it is normal to wonder how the energy generation and distribution works in another country. When I was in Thailand, I saw that electric cables were still above ground unlike in Germany. However, being a total nerd, I had to find out more about where those cables came from and what the original energy source was. Thanks to NT from NCC (National Control Center – see my previous blog entry), I was able to understand the general idea of the system a little more.
In January 2015, our SRH logistics class went on a field visit to the logistics center of the German Red Cross (Deutsches Rotes Kreuz, DRK) at Schönefeld Airport near Berlin. The logistics center was established in 2010 in this location because of the proximity to the airport.
It is time once again to let go of our holidays and get back into university life. Some are excited, some not and some will miss it. Some of us have graduated and will start a new chapter in life. Looking for a job, go travel or continue to study somewhere else. I have just started my second year at SRH and am curious as to how life may be after university and what I could do before the time comes.
One of the first things you want to do in Thailand, once you step out of the airport, is going to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and doing an interview. At least I did. After a week of beach time and good food that is.
So vieles kann innerhalb eines Jahres passieren. Das kann SRH Absolvent Artur Steffen nur bestätigen, denn seit seinem Abschluss 2014 hat sich sein Leben deutlich verändert. Im September 2014, kurz nach der Absolventenfeier, gründete Artur seine Firma MedLango. Diese vermittelt Dolmetscher für ausländische Patienten, die sich in Deutschland medizinisch versorgen lassen wollen.
