At 22, Magnus Kolnes Oddstøl is one of our youngest team members. He first joined UBIQ Aerospace for a summer internship and is now working part-time as Embedded Systems Engineer while studying for a master’s degree in Electronic Systems Design at NTNU.
Can you tell us a bit about your background?
– For the last three years I’ve been a part of a technical student organization called Shift Hyperloop. I think almost every skill I use at UBIQ daily I’ve learned through this organization.
What motivates you?
– Working on a cool project where I’m excited for the end product. And also the right amount of challenge: the work should not be too simple, but I like being able to see results without being stuck for months and months.
Who’s your favourite Nobel prize winner?
– Richard Feynman was one of the first Nobel laureates I heard about and was inspired by. We had a teacher at high school who showed us his lectures.
If you were a superhero, what powers would you have?
– Selective mind-reading.
Can you recommend a book that you like right now?
– I like page-turner crime books, and I can recommend every book by the Swedish writer couple, pseudonym Lars Kepler. Their books are simple but they keep you wanting to read more and more.
