Hermann Ermisch – The beginning of a promising career path

Our last stop was Cairns where we returned the camper van. We spent four days in Cairns. Besides going scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef which was an incredible experience (!), we spent the others relaxing at the hostel and meeting new people. In addition, we met an old high school friend from Germany who happened to live in Cairns.

Finally, we took our return flight to Sydney where we spent a total of six more days. We spent much of the time doing coastal walks and further sightseeing. Moreover, we went hiking in the Blue Mountains. And last but not least, I used the time to say goodbye to all those great friends I made during my time in Australia.

Traveling in Asia and Australia was an amazing time not only because I saw and did so many exciting things but also because I was able to meet so many interesting and kind hearted people. This travel experience allowed me to broaden my worldview and experience new and interesting cultures. Therefore, I am really grateful that I had the chance to do it! All in all, this semester abroad is one of the best decisions I have ever made!”

Plans, dreams and future aspirations: what’s in the pipeline?

“Going to Australia to study for a semester changed my mindset to a certain degree; it made me realise that working abroad is something I want to do and there are many opportunities: for instance, in countries like Australia, the UK, Canada or the United States. After graduating, I’d like to do an internship at a consulting company in Germany until the end of August, and then afterwards, I would like to gain some work experience in Canada for a year. After that, to come back to Germany and do a master’s degree in engineering.”

His motivation and clear-eyed view of future potential were obvious, but I asked Hermann about some of the ideas that he thought might shape his next moves in life.

My study programme has become more and more specialised in the field of data science. What I want to do is combine my expertise from the engineering sector and from the field of renewable energy sources with modern technologies or with the field of data science because there’s a lot of potential where we can make use of that data.

What I want to do is combine my expertise from the engineering sector and from the field of renewable energy sources with modern technologies or with the field of data science because there’s a lot of potential where we can make use of that data. And through that, I want to improve the efficiency of our energy systems, leading to new and improved ways in how we produce electricity or heat. That’s the long-term goal and this would, of course, contribute to more sustainable energy generation and protect the environment. Hence, I want to be part of the solution and thus be part of working towards a better future for all of us. That’s pretty much the dream. And the goal.

I would also love to do some of these things as an entrepreneur. This would enable me to run projects and develop ideas through my own company. And ideally, by founding my own company, I can do something good for humanity – either related to the energy sector or another sector.”
