What our Graduates are doing today

“In 2007 I completed my Master’s in Computer Science at the University of Paderborn. My interest for developing parallel medical algorithms in computer tomography rose from my Master’s Thesis written at the “Paderborn Center for Parallel Computing” (PC2). Because I enjoyed my research work and completed my degree successfully, I was offered a PhD research position directly after graduation. Now I am researching current topics in medical informatics, working in an enjoyable university environment, and I can discuss my findings and relevant issues during topic-related conferences with scientists from all over the world.”

“I studied Computer Science at the RWTH Aachen from 1990 to 1997. After completing by final thesis, I worked from 1997 to 2003 as a research assistant at the University of Paderborn, where I also wrote my PhD Thesis. At the TU Berlin, from 2004 to 2006, I evaluated the introduction of new technologies in software development. Today I am still involved in research, but in the free industry now. Since 2007 I have been working at Siemens as a software architect, heading research projects on distributed software systems and service-oriented architectures and introducing the research findings into Siemens’ business areas.”

“For two years after 1996, after completing my studies at the University of Paderborn with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Economics, I worked as a research assistant for the chair of Computer Science & Society. After that I applied for a job at Ericsson Germany GmBH, where I began working as a software designer for GSN servers. Then I held different positions in the area of software test & maintenance: starting as a test engineer, then working as a technical coordinator, and finally as a project manager. In the summer of 2008 I switched employers and moved to Sogeti GmbH, a consulting company specialized in software test planning, software management and software implementation. Currently, I am working for them as a test manager (consultant) at Vodafone Group Services GmbH.”

“I received a B. Sc. degree from National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan in 1994, a M. Sc. degree from National TsingHua University, Taiwan in 1996, and a PhD degree from the University of Paderborn in 2005. After obtaining my PhD degree, I joined the Department of Computer Science and Information Engineering of National Chung Cheng University in Taiwan. I am currently an assistant professor and lead the Computational Intelligence Laboratory where I advise three PhD students and nine Master students in their research in evolutionary computation, meta-heuristic algorithms, optimization algorithms, and artificial intelligence.“
