Eric Fautz, M.Sc.

Product Specialist Business Line Specialties, ALBIS PLASTIC GmbH, Hamburg

I found my way into the world of plastics technology through the time I spent as a student worker at IKV. Shortly before deciding on a specialist subject in my bachelor's studies, I had an opportunity at the Institute to get a taste of the world of plastics. Consequently, the decision was not difficult. I chose plastics technology and remained true to it up to my qualification as M.Sc. Alongside my studies, I continued to serve as a student worker and learned at IKV the practical handling of injection moulding machines, carried out materials testing and simulated material behaviour in the Part Design/Materials Technology department. This practical experience is also helping me every day in my job as a Product Specialist at ALBIS PLASTIC. There, as the interface between material development, laboratory and global marketing, I am constantly involved with exciting projects for new materials from all sectors of industry.

With my solid training at IKV, starting out in the industry was not difficult. Especially the network that was built up with staff and fellow students at the Institute is a big advantage and will accompany me throughout my professional career. Contact with IKV is forever!
