Mustafa has been a Sales Coordinator at Visual Components since 2018. He knew from a young age that he wanted to work within the engineering industry, and began taking course geared towards this profession as early as high school.
When he’s not managing leads or presenting 3D simulation software demos, Mustafa has a few hobbies. He likes going to the gym, listening to music, watching TV series and movies, and reading when he has the time. He specifically enjoys science fiction and horror books by Stephen King.
What is your career background?
I’m from Pakistan, where the biggest engineering field is mechanical engineering. Mechanical engineering is a very broad topic. I decided to pursue the more specialized study of industrial engineering, a subfield of mechanical engineering, that focuses on manufacturing technologies.
After getting my bachelors degree and working for two years in Pakistan I moved to Finland for my masters in Industrial Engineering and Management, which focused more on operative sales.
How did you end up working at Visual Components?
I came across Visual Components by chance. The software was already being used at Tampere University of Technology, and a friend had been talking about it quite a bit. I wanted to focus on technical sales, but at the time there were no available positions at VC. I lucked out a while later when I found a VC Sales Coordinator job that had just been posted on LinkedIn that day.
