SRC at ICPS 2019 in dialogue with physics students
SRC attends the ICPS 2019 Jobfair
Physics students will meet for the 34th time at ICPS 2019 in Cologne. The “Jobfair” taking place on Tuesday, August 13, 2019, will provide the setting.
SRC uses the ICPS 2019 to provide physicists with insights into and an exchange on the diverse topics of IT security. The SRC experts explain the challenges of technology assessment using examples such as mobile payment methods, artificial intelligence and similar topics. This requires a strong instinct for potential sources of error in complex environments, the competence to find solutions and the will to implement them. Especially students with a physical background bring these valuable qualities with them. Dr. Max Hettrich already reported in the interview “From quantum physicist to security analyst at SRC” on how a career can develop from these qualities.
By students for students — The ICPS 2019
The ICPS finds a new home every year. More than 500 physics students and doctoral candidates from more than 50 nations not only have the opportunity to exchange their knowledge; they also get to know the culture and mentality of the host country. The ICPS is organised by the respective student associations of the host country. This year, the organisation team consisting of members of the young German Physical Society, the Institute for Theoretical Physics of the University of Cologne and the Bonn-Cologne Graduate School of Physics and Astronomy who have prepared a programme that will last 8 days.
Matthias Dahlmanns is the project coordinator of ICPS 2019 and a working student at SRC. “Coordinating the organisation of the ICPS 2019 is a great experience. The participation of SRC makes me personally very happy”, says Matthias Dahlmanns. Dr. Benjamin Botermann, Senior Consultant Test & Quality Assurance, is also looking forward to the exchange with the many interested physics students: “I am very excited about the ICPS Jobfair. As a physicist, I find myself absolutely at home working at SRC. I am looking forward to the exchange with the prospective physicists. In a personal conversation, I would like to talk about the various fields of activity at SRC and answer the numerous and detailed questions”.
