Working student at IMS

Working student at IMS

The reasons for working as a student trainee vary. One needs the money, the other is looking for practice to go with the theory or simply wants to keep up to date. For me, it was a little bit of everything when I joined IMS as a working student started.

I have been studying applied computer science at the University of Duisburg-Essen for three semesters. Before that I did an apprenticeship as an application developer, so I have some prior knowledge and some skills that I don't want to lose.

Door opener

IMS has opened many doors for me here: I develop on regular products and for practice. Knowledge of HTML, Java-Script and CSS for the user interface of the software is required, plus SQL and C# for work on databases and in the backend. In principle, however, you can also work here with specialised knowledge, IMS is very open.

IMS is also flexible in terms of working hours. Yes, according to how my semesters are divided, we put my working hours on suitable days of the week. Currently I'm on Thursdays and Fridays in the company. If there is an exam, working days can also be postponed. That really makes it easy.


Why I like to work as a working student? The Education provides very intensive theoretical knowledge, especially on modelling, logic, data structures, algorithms and the strategies linked to them. Basic knowledge is of course also part of an education, but here it is many times more intensive.

The fact that I can apply and try out this theoretical knowledge directly in practice as a working student is a real advantage, I think. I also like the fact that the developers at IMS are open to my ideas, because the exchange brings additional knowledge. And the other advantages?


It's important to me that I can finance my studies by working as a student trainee. I can integrate the work into my everyday life and don't have to sacrifice any semester breaks. I can put my new knowledge into practice, keep my practical experience at a high level and stay up-to-date. That's good for now, but even better for the future:

At some point, I will have completed my studies, and for the applications that follow, the combination of theory and practice is certainly an important advantage.


Best regards

Simon is a working student at IMS on the development of IMSWARE and IMSWARE.GO! involved. But he is not a bone-dry data nerd: Simon has been playing the piano for 14 years, sometimes, by the way, during performances at the Schlossstheater Moers, whose company he belongs to. And then he is still a bit of a nerd - when he plays games on the computer in his spare time.
