When I started my master’s course on automotive engineering, I had one regret. Too much of what I had studied was too theoretical for my taste. I see my position of mechanical engineer within the Punch Powertrain Solar Team as an amazing opportunity to translate my theoretical knowledge into a fast and reliable solar car. Not only that, it also provides a lot of experience for a future career and gives me a unique insight into the workings of our partner corporations. As mechanical engineer, my job is to design, produce and assemble the suspension, the brakes and the steering system. I will do this with Robin and Pieter. My name is Joachim and I’m looking forward to this adventure.
