2023 Trainees Outside
Once again, it is time for the previous trainees to take the next step in NKT and a new batch of trainees to come in. This year we have increased our numbers, and we have five trainees ready to begin our rotations. Four of us are located in Karlskrona, Sweden, and for the first time we have one of us in Köln (Cologne), Germany. We wish Claes, André, and Petter all the best in their new positions and can’t wait to meet them during our rotations! The question you must be asking is: who are the new trainees? Well, let us introduce ourselves! (from left to right in the picture: Thorben, Louise, Fritjof, Jakob, and Isak)
Hello everyone, my name is Thorben Schneider, and I'm from Germany. I grew up in a small town on the border with Dortmund and completed my master's in mechanical engineering with emphasis on product engineering at the University Duisburg-Essen. Now, my next step is to start as a trainee at the production site in Cologne, specializing in Process Engineering. I'm very excited to be part of NKT's trainee program. In this exciting field of work, I will contribute to advancing the energy transition. Together with my Swedish trainee colleagues, I will seize the opportunity to further develop personally. The chance to rotate through various departments and thus gain an understanding of the interplay of the manufacturing process is a great honor for me. My goal is to grow with NKT so that next year, new talents can go through the trainee program in Germany as well.    Thanks for reading! Stay tuned and see you soon!
Hi! My name is Louise and I come from a small town called Grängesberg in the southern part of Dalarna.  I have always loved learning new things and building a bigger picture of how those things work. I also love trying new things and especially anything connected to arts and crafts!
After high school I began studying electrical engineering at Chalmers with a master's in biomedical engineering. The most intriguing part of that was the integration between humans and technology, and how connected the societal branches are. Through internships in both the power transmission and isolation material industry, my interest in energy transmission and the complexity of cables grew. I wanted to expand my horizon and learn as much as possible, and the NKT trainee program is the perfect opportunity for that!
I look forward to sharing my small adventures within NKT with you!
Hello, blog. My name is Fritjof Nilsson, and I am 25 years old, born and raised in Sjöbo, a small town in the middle of Skåne. For as long as I can remember, I have always been very creative and loved solving problems, which led me to pursue my Master of Science in Marine Technology at BTH in Karlskrona, a journey I completed this summer. Currently, there is significant growth within the Marine sector in Karlskrona, and I am extremely proud to be a part of it as a trainee at NKT, contributing to the creation of products that facilitate the transition to green energy.
Before moving to Karlskrona for my advanced studies, I lived in Eslöv for three years, where I attended a technical high school with a focus on table tennis as a sports profile. Table tennis has played a significant role in my life, alongside my passion for sports fishing, which was one of the reasons I decided to move to Karlskrona to study Marine Technology.
As a trainee at NKT, I see an abundance of opportunities, and I highly value the ability to see the bigger picture. I am eagerly looking forward to learning as much as possible during this year, and I hope that you, our readers, will enjoy our updates from various rotations.
Over and out, Fritjof.
Hello there! My name is Jakob Nilsson, and I'm 24 years old and I come from Osby located in northern Skåne. I recently completed my master's degree in mechanical engineering with emphasis on applied mechanics at Blekinge Institute of Technology, and I'm incredibly excited to embark on my next adventure as a trainee. Getting the chance to start as a trainee is truly a dream come true for me. I look forward to continuing to learn and grow within NKT and I really feel like the possibilities are endless here. Apart from my technical interests, I am also an active person that loves to practice different sports, with a great passion for football. I also enjoy being out in the nature.
I'm really looking forward to the future and the opportunity to share my experiences and knowledge with all of you. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little better!
Greetings, everyone! I'm Isak Olofsson, hailing from a small town in the vicinity of Hässleholm, Skåne. Five years ago, I made a significant move to Karlskrona to pursue a master's degree in mechanical engineering, with a focus on applied mechanics at Blekinge Institute of Technology. Beyond my technical interests, I have a deep passion for sports, particularly football.
As my educational journey neared its end, I began shifting my focus toward the future and exploring potential employers on a global scale. NKT swiftly emerged as the ideal candidate, offering a wealth of opportunities and possibilities within the organization. What truly sealed the deal for me was their outstanding trainee program, perfectly aligned with my educational background and technical interests.
Now that I've embarked on this exciting journey with NKT, I am eager to absorb knowledge, broaden my horizons, and contribute to both personal growth and the company's success.
