About me

Hi, I’m David and I’m studying mechatronics (M.Sc.) with a specialisation in robotics at TU Darmstadt. The new, future oriented specialisation robotics perfectly matches my interests. I’m especially interested in cutting-edge research-topics like robot learning, in which TU Darmstadt takes a leading role.

David,
M.Sc. Mechatronics

TU Darmstadt is one of Germanys leading institutions in the subject area of engineering and as I’m coming from Hessen, TU Darmstadt was already well known to me. Thus, it was a very quick decision to study mechatronics here.

Why I chose TU Darmstadt:

TU Darmstadt is one of Germanys leading institutions in the subject area of engineering and as I’m coming from Hessen, TU Darmstadt was already well known to me. Thus, it was a very quick decision to study mechatronics here. Also, Darmstadt is very close to Frankfurt, which is great for going out … however, I kind of wasn’t really using that opportunity in the end :D

What thrills me about Darmstadt:

Most importantly there is the iconic “Goldene Krone” location, which is a bar/club, often featuring live music. Also, Darmstadt offers plenty of sport clubs, parcs, the beautiful Jugendstilbad and plenty of other things. By the way, you can reach almost everything by bike in Darmstadt, so that is pretty convenient as well.

How I experienced the start of the digital winter semester 2021/22:

The great thing is, I feel like the digital semester is not that digital after all. Even though many of my modules take place online, I’m finally able to meet up with friends at university again. Learning together and meeting up for lunch in between definitely boosts motivation. Also, the digital curriculum offers a very flexible time-management. Nevertheless, I’m looking forward to having more lectures in person again.

Fun fact about me:

I build an internet-connected tazer alarm clock once…was not my greatest idea though :D

My favourite motto:

No worries!
