Description

Hi, my name is Jorge, and I am one of the engineering graduates in the 2020 batch at Demant. I am originally from Madrid, Spain, where I obtained my BSc in Audio-visual Systems Engineering, but after having spent one exchange year in Denmark (Aalborg), I decided to move here in 2018 in order to finish my MSc in Signal Processing and Acoustics (AAU) and build a career.

I feel really lucky to be part of Demant’s graduate programme since it has given me the opportunity to work with brilliant people in a context in which I have a lot of room for learning, exploring and developing myself, while also having quite a level of responsibility. I started my first rotation with a little bit of a head-start in the department of Technology Development in EPOS (R&D). Here I can contribute to the development of cutting-edge technologies in the fields of enterprise/personal communication and gaming. Moreover, I have been also given the chance to support other teams and projects both in EPOS and Oticon, allowing me to peek and learn from the different business areas. In addition, everyone has been very welcoming, and the overall work environment is great.

I am a huge nerd for music (and audio in general, which comes in handy for my job), so when I’m not in the office or labs I like to spend my time trying to discover new bands/albums, either going to concerts or record-hunting.

Hi, I am Jennie, and I am an engineering graduate at Demant. In June 2020, I graduated from LTH, Lund University, with a master’s degree in mechanical engineering where I specialized within product development. Further, I spent two terms on exchange studies at University of Waterloo in Canada.

I am grateful being part of Demant’s graduate programme, having the opportunity working at an innovative company that is helping people to improve their life quality. My first rotation is taking place in the product quality department at Oticon, where I am involved with explorative tests, learning about all different products, supporting with small tasks, and running my own project related to requirements for green products. The company and my team have both been very welcoming, and so far, there is a perfect mixture between flexibility and responsibility in my daily work.

I am originally from the south of Sweden, just moved “all the way” to Copenhagen, and I have a great passion for skiing. On my spare time I spend a lot of time with family and friends, running or cycling, or planning for upcoming dinners, cheese and wine evenings or ski trips.

My name is Silvia and I started my two-years of programme as engineering graduate, with a little advance, in March 2019. I am Italian and Padua is where I obtained my BSc in Information Engineering. I moved to Denmark three years ago to start my master in Telecommunication engineering at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where I was able to combine my interest for signal processing and my aim to live an international experience.

I feel incredibly lucky to be part of Demant graduate programme: being able to challenge yourself with tasks that are sometimes quite different from one another is a rare opportunity. Moreover, it is quite rewarding to partake to the activities of a company whose core motivation is to improve the life of hearing impaired people. I started the program with an extra-long – almost 1 year – rotation in the R&D department of Sennheiser Communication. Here I can contribute to the development of the latest technologies in the field of personal communication, which in the main aim, as the name says, of the Technology Development team I am part of.

When I am not in the office I love to spend my time playing volleyball and I am part of my old university women’s team. Music is my biggest passion so I listen to a lot of music, try to play the guitar and go to a lot of concerts. I am as Italian as I can be and my roots promptly show up when food and wine are around!

Description

Hello, my name is Rasmus and I started as an engineering graduate at Demant in 2019. I studied the design engineering degree Design and Innovation at Denmark’s technical university. Throughout my studies I have largely focused on hardware and environmental improvements in R&D. I have always had a passion for sound and music, which does come in handy when working with sound on a daily basis.

My current rotation is in the department for product quality in Oticon.
Here I work along with a test team in ensuring the liability of products before market release. This department has shown to be a great place to gain contacts all over the company, which has given me great insights in the development structure and procedure. I also run my own project, which is based in the US department of Demant. Here I develop new solutions for the direct contact with our customers.

I have been very well received in Demant and have been given responsibility and space to deal with the projects I have worked with as I have seen fit. I have gained all the support I needed to drive both these projects and become and integrated part of Demant at the same time. Demant holds extremely many very different projects and products, that both deals with acoustics, integrated software, data science and robust design – to mention some. As such there are many possibilities and different directions to go in R&D here.

Description

I am one of the two Engineering Graduates who started in 2018.
My background is within mechanical and computational engineering, which I studied at The Technical University of Denmark, combined with studies in the USA and in Singapore.

As a graduate, there is an important amount of responsibility, expectations and trust from the very beginning of the programme. At the same time, there is high flexibility to be involved in projects of varied technical focus, due to the multidisciplinary field of hearing technology.

For my first rotation, I am part of Product Development at Sennheiser Communications as a project manager, with a focus on manufacturing. Sennheiser Communications is owned by the Demant Group, and a very interesting place to be as an engineer, since R&D is a big part of the company. Engineers, from mechanical development to electroacoustics and software, are working closely together and combining technologies, which are structured through systems engineering.

Furthermore, I enjoy learning from a wide network of graduates across backgrounds and specializations and working with welcoming colleagues about the latest hearing technologies through projects and courses.

I´m Cecilia Rodriguez, I started Demant’s Graduate Programme in September 2018 in the engineering track and I have my first rotation in the quality department.

I was born and raised in Mexico where I studied my bachelor in Biotechnology Engineering and later I pursed a master in Environmental Engineering in the USA.
It has always been my goal to develop myself to my full potential while acquiring an international perspective, which is why the Graduate Programme was a perfect match to my objectives.

The Programme is designed for graduates to learn as much as possible about the company. In this first rotation I´m involved in projects that allow me to get to know the product portfolio better and the many regulations involved in the production of hearing devices. Additionally, I´ve had many introductions to the different areas of quality and in general to the company and the products.

Everyone has been very welcoming, I can´t be happier as I´ve met awesome people and an environment full of cooperation and teamwork.

My name is Camilla, I started as Engineering Graduate at Demant in 2017. I am a Design Engineer and graduated from DTU in February 2017.
My first rotation was in R&D – Hardware, where I was part of three very different projects. One had an organizational focus, one a more mechanical design focus and one was within systems engineering.
The first period of time here was filled with a lot of introductions to both the company in general and to the products from a technical point of view. We visited the production in Poland as well and got to build our own hearing aid. To me, knowing the products from the beginning is the best way to become a good Engineering Graduate, as this enables me to contribute more to the project work.
