Genki Instruments recently had the pleasure of hosting students from the departments of mathematics, physics and electrical engineering at the University of Iceland.
The students had a chance to learn a bit about the technical aspects of hardware/software development while also getting a glimpse into the lives of startup-founders that not too long ago were standing in their shoes.
Events such as this one are quite common amongst university students in Iceland, who regularly have the chance to lay down the books and visit companies in a relaxed setting on a Friday evening and learn about industry opportunities post graduation.
During their time at the electrical engineering department at the University of Iceland, two of Genki Instruments’ co-founders had a chance to participate in numerous such fun events, and are happy to now have hosted their first one.
