First things first: My name is Debora, I am an industrial engineer from Brazil. As teenager, I used to dream working in fashion (actually I’m a graduated graphic designer). But destiny played with me and made me realize that I should keep the fashion in my wardrobe. I found myself happier in the automotive field and have worked in product development, consulting and technical sales before entering the ZF Trainee Program. A passion for innovative markets, smart factory, new mobility and big data subjects are also part of the mix.
Then my first project fulfilled these expectations perfectly: I worked for 4 months at ZF Race Engineering in Schweinfurt and researched possibilities of Industry 4.0 applications to the assembly process. I left the friendly department in the end of January with a plan for the next steps for implementation.
That’s great being able to see available technology ready to be applied. Being part of ZF Trainee Program has been a mix of learning and adventure: there’re tons to learn about the industry and business and also lots of personal development, in which we rely on new friends and have fun worldwide.
