Thomas Nesch was born to tinker.
In 2008, Daimler AG mechatronics trainee Thomas Nesch, at just 19 years old, won the national competition “Jugend forscht.” His winning submission was a working prototype for a sensor that has the ability to track fluid loss of tubes in paint robots. His win took him to “Youth Research” and acted as a stepping stone leading to higher stakes competitions where he eventually won the national final in Bremerhaven.
From budding 'Jugend forscht' to 'Master of Engineering.'
After secondary school Nesch began studying engineering at one of the most prestigious universities in the world, the University of Cambridge. While studying he started his own electronics company 'Nesch Engineering,' and completed numerous internships with reputable companies before starting at Daimler Business Innovation in 2013. Since the end of June 2015, Thomas Nesch, now 26, works as project coordinator in Business Innovation at Daimler AG.
