Joel is an Application Engineer who began working at Visual Components as a thesis student in 2017. Outside of work Joel enjoys almost every kind of sport, from climbing and cross-country skiing to cycling, running, and playing floorball. He can also play the guitar, and enjoys reading and drawing too.
Like many staff at Visual Components, Joel likes travelling. His last work trip took him to Gothenburg for the Advanced Engineering trade show, and he plans to take a personal vacation to Canada in summer 2019.
How did you end up at Visual Components?
I was looking for thesis positions while studying mechanical engineering at Aalto University. I majored in Machine Design with a Minor in Mechatronics, and was doing my thesis on component classification and best practices in component modelling. I found Visual Components via the Aalto CareerWeb and it caught my interests.
What about Visual Components caught your attention?
I believe that software is the key for engineers to handle increasingly complex designing and analysation tasks. Also, as a person, I am ambitious to keep up with the latest technology within my field. I have always been fascinated by robotics and the possibilities they provide.
