It has been fifteen years since he enrolled at the CDTF; three years later, he continued his education at Paderborn University, graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering ten years ago. When he was a student in Paderborn, Janbo Dai (photo on the left) carried out his industrial traineeship at ARI-Armaturen, a company in Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock. Here, he also found his first position after having completed a year-long trainee program. For nine years now, Janbo Dai has been holding the position as procurement manager at the company's Chinese headquarter in Shanghai. During a visit in East Westphalia, he met with project coordinators Dr.-Ing. Vera Denzer and Dr. Josef Noeke at Paderborn University to learn about the further developments of this university cooperation.
