Already in the first half of this year, we welcomed Patrick Wattenberg for six weeks as a student intern at inIT. He enjoyed the time at the institute, during which Patrick was able to get a taste of the research topics of different working groups, so much that he decided to do a second internship at inIT. The working group "Interconnected Automation Systems" headed by Prof. Henning Trsek, who once again took over Patrick's supervision, was looking forward to seeing him again.

Building on his previous work at inIT and his personal skills in web development, Patrick implemented a front and back end of a website for the visualisation of sensor readings in real time. The challenge was to develop and implement a generic concept for sharing different technologies so that it can be used in a variety of use cases. It is planned to use the dashboard designed and implemented by Patrick in further research projects for the visualisation of sensor data. Through the second student internship at inIT, Patrick has further deepened his technical knowledge. "Patrick's progress during the internship was clearly visible and we are very satisfied with the overall result," is the feedback from the two supervisors Daniel Antonow and Philip Priss.

Patrick is currently in the last year of his school education as an "Information Technology Assistant" at Lüttfeld Berufskolleg. Patrick sees his professional future in the IT sector and is aiming for an apprenticeship after his vocational baccalaureate. Patrick can also imagine studying at TH OWL in the future. With regard to the upcoming application phase, we wish Patrick all the best and much success!

Patrick's conclusion: An internship at inIT is a very good opportunity to develop personally and gain insights into current research topics.
