About Mr. Kortmann


Martin Kortmann studied from 2007 to 2013 Mechanical Engineering at University of Paderborn and finished his master’s degree working at Volkswagen AG. During his education he decided on spezialising in the fields of Design Technology, Lightweight design, metallic materials and plastics technology. Mister Kortmann worked from 2011 till 2012 for half a year as an intern in the US. Since 2013 he works as researcher for SLA and is responsible for the development of the mechanical and electrical interface within the framework of the cooperation projects iBOSS-2 and iBOSS-3 . Furthermore, he supports the development and design of other, project-specific mechanisms and structural components.
