Electrical Engineering – Technical University Dortmund

My first academical stop was at the Technical University Dortmund where I was attending the bachelor’s degree for electrical engineering in 2017, right after high school. This only held for one semester though, as I quickly realized that it’s going too deep into the hardware part of our highly paced digitalizing world. That was, when I realized high level software development being more in my interest.
