UCY Student’s industrial internship experience at Gantner Instruments

An internship at Gantner Instruments is a great way to connect classroom knowledge to real-world experience. Learning is one thing but taking those skills into the workforce and applying them is a great way to explore different career paths and specializations that suit individual interests. This internship can provide someone with experience in the career field they want to pursue, give individuals an edge over other candidates when applying for jobs, prepare them for what to expect in their field, and increase their confidence in their work.

Loucas Pikolos from the PV Technology Lab of FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy of the University of Cyprus visited Gantner Instruments as an intern from the 5th of November 2022 until the 26th of November 2022, in the context of the ANALYTIC project (Advanced System Monitoring & Analytics for Smart Grids).

The internship’s purpose was to develop a prediction model that will be used as a service for the company’s customers to ensure that their power plant is operating properly. Loucas, during his internship, had an introduction to the company’s departments to understand how the company operates. Moreover, we introduced the platforms for Loucas to get familiar with the software and hardware environment. 

More specifically, Loucas had advanced training on GI.bench/ software and hardware and can now use both as a professional. Furthermore, during his cooperation with the company’s staff, he developed well-rounded skills in Python and extended his knowledge in performance prediction models and machine learning. Finally, he received training on the latest generation platforms, where he will be able to schedule and orchestrate data pipelines or workflows in the future.   

Loucas enjoyed his internship, and now he has very valuable experience under his belt. He found the internship demanding since the tasks were real industrial deliverables and not just training on relative software.

During these three weeks, Loucas participated in local events and several company events, which made his stay happy and efficient. Last but not least, Loucas’ last words were, “People in Gantner Instruments are crazy, they work hard, and they party harder.” Loucas encourages students and young professionals who desire to learn to hunt for an Internship at Gantner Instruments since the improvement is guaranteed.
