Jan Lux is a born engineer: Both his mother and his father already had taken engineering studies in Aachen. After high school, he decided to take the same path. “I have always been interested in natural sciences and maths”, he says. He also chose the RWTh in Aachen because “it has a good reputation especially in mechanical engineering”. After having finished his studies in 2013, he continued to work as a research assistant at the Technical University.
He already had heard of the “Prix d’Excellence” from friends back in 2012. After having completed his studies, he decided to take part. “The award is certainly a recognition. Even more so as the studies were time intensive and stressful and one sometimes wanted to abandon. It shows that our work is appreciated by professionals”, he says. Jan Lux spent the money for travelling after the studies.
