Peter Wikholm, a chemical engineering student at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and member of ÅF Future, discusses his view of the network.
Why did you join ÅF Future?
To gain an insight into a very interesting company and an opportunity to carry out an industrial assignment. Thanks to AF Future, I’ve had a valuable insight into what it’s like to work as a consultant. This has given me a head start in my career.
What has your assignment at ÅF meant for you?
I’ve gained important experience and seen what it’s like to be an engineer even before I graduate. The assignment is closely linked to my specialisation and has opened doors for when I do my dissertation.
Can you tell us about your assignment?
I examined the working methods for the installation of a component in a laboratory to ensure that experiments are repeatable. This work resulted in an installation manual.
How long was it before you got an offer?
I had an offer after six months that I turned down, and I had another offer after a further six months that I accepted.
