Couple of company visits, couple of tests, and ITALY awaits!
06.19.2012 - 06.21.2012
So yeah, like the title suggest this was a rather short week. I had a test on Monday, right after getting back from Cologne, and then had a company visit to Bayer AG, the pharmaceutical company that came up with Aspirin. Apart from that Monday and Tuesday were pretty chill, didn't have a whole lot to do and got some rest. We had a visit to the local Anna Amalia library in Weimar though, which was a pretty short visit. It had volumes dating back to 8th and 12th centuries, still accessible for public.
We had another company visit to Schott AG, a huge glass manufacturing company in Jena, and this was a rather interesting visit. I got to know about their Solar Panel division, which has been involved in some heavy projects around the world and known for its outstanding engineering in this field. We had a visit to the company museum, and we got to hear about the development of the company over the years. Apparently, the company was partnered with Carl Zeiss, the best lens manufacturers of lenses in the world. So yeah, this was one of the big visits during my stay here in Germany.
Another test was coming up on Thursday, so spent all of Wednesday studying for it. After finishing the test on Thursday, I was in a great great mood, of course because ITALY was just hours away!!!
