In my internship atWavec I had the excellent opportunity of working with an innovative team and in a cooperative friendly work environment. I was involved in a project and developed Linux skills that I did not possess before. It was an outstanding occasion to complement my academic background in a practical and fulfilling way.
At WavEC I had my first contact with what I believe to be one of the most alluring applications of engineering: Research & Development. It was a privilege to have the opportunity of working with a multidisciplinary team, that applies its vast knowledge to bring new solutions to real world needs. In my case, I learned and implemented advanced Deep Learning algorithms to estimate and predict weather conditions through image processing
WavEC is part of an important period of my professional career, where I gained several skills in different technological areas, general management and Human Resources management, where I was always encouraged to pursuit for new challenges. I can say that are few companies where you can find a group of people so united and competent, performing innovative projects with such close relation with the industry.
Trabalhar no WavEC foi uma experiência muito enriquecedora dado que tive a oportunidade de aprender sobre um sector em franco crescimento - as energias renováveis no mar. Tive também a oportunidade de participar em diversos estudos de avaliação de incidências ambientais no mar, onde participei em diferentes campanhas de recolha de dados no mar. Participei em vários projetos Europeus e tive a possibilidade de conhecer de perto o funcionamento de várias instituições de investigação europeias, os seus investigadores e as metodologias que são postas em prática nestes centros.
I started as an intern at the WavEC and ended up staying for 5 more years. WavEC is an excellent place for a young professional. It gives you all the space and freedom to learn and explore your strength and weaknesses. I had the opportunity to go to different conference, workshops and courses all over Europe. This gave me a broad perspective of the wave energy industry all over the world and also to have a huge network of people from all over the world. Without WavEC I wouldn’t be the person that I am today.
I liked the lovely small group of passionate colleagues about renewables with a mixed profile and age and very high dedication of work
A Operação&Manutenção da Central de Ondas do Pico foi um grande desafio: uma instalação pioneira, com tecnologia inovadora, e instalada num local de extremos.
Recordo a experiência como um privilégio, pelas características únicas do projecto e pelo suporte que tive por parte do WavEC.
São projectos como este, nobres no objetivo e arrojados na implementação, que deixam a sua marca no progresso cientifico.
