Your future with Siemens

Computer Science Tech Meetup, Zug / Wednesday, 17 November 2021, 3-6 p.m.

Siemens’ informatics teams are shaping the world from behind the scenes as the driving forces of digital change. Are you studying computer science, and do you have an interest in helping to create the digital infrastructure of the future? Then come and join us at the Computer Science Tech Meetup and discover the exciting world of Siemens informatics, chat with experts (in fields such as cybersecurity, open source, internet of things, data analytics and agile development) and find out what your future in Siemens computer science could look like. And to top it all, you might even be lucky enough to win a trip for two to the EXPO2020 in Dubai

Dr. Berit Wessler

Innovation Management & Digital Business Manager


As a product manager, Berit is driving the digitalization of buildings by bringing together 2D/3D model data with a building’s IoT data. This «digital twin» provides a real-time understanding of how a building is performing – enabling immediate adjustment to optimize efficiency or react to the current occupancy of a floor. Berit will show you how buildings can become smarter.

Ganesh Ramanthan

Technology Professional


Ganesh Ramanathan has been working in the field of building automation for the past 25 years and combines his backgrounds in mechanical engineering and computer science to explore the exciting area. He is currently working to leverage the paradigms of the Web of Things in order to develop interoperable systems with a vision to create autonomous buildings.

Dr. Paul Baumann

Deputy Head of Data Analytics


Paul is a computer and data scientist, engineer, and passionate supporter of students in tech. In his everyday life at Siemens, he leads the global data analytics team as they develop the self-adaptive buildings of the future using AI. In this presentation, you are invited to explore together where building data comes from, what it looks like and what it is worth: how it is collected and prepared, how meaning is added to it, and how it is used to make decisions and to enable buildings to drive themselves.

Piotr Skoczylas

Software Architect 


Piotr started his career at Siemens as a developer for DALI-2 systems, including the Human Centric Lighting solution. Afterward, he was involved in the containerization approach on embedded devices, and currently, he is designing a future of the building automation platform.

Dr. Alina Matyukhina

Cybersecurity Manager


There are many good reasons for having smart buildings: they react intuitively to the needs of their users, learn from experience, and continuously adapt. However, smart buildings can pose new risks. The Internet of Things and the increased connectivity of devices to the cloud can make buildings vulnerable to cyberattacks. Alina takes a closer look at the key trends impacting the cybersecurity of smart building technologies and the measures being taken to address these challenges.

Lars Sander (host/moderation)

Cybersecurity Officer Switzerland


Thanks to security roles in several global and industry leading projects, Lars has attained a thorough knowledge of common cybersecurity strengths and weaknesses at all levels of organizations. At Siemens, he leverages this practical experience to protect the company’s assets from current and upcoming threats. When not doing so, he can most likely be found out on a bicycle ride or 3D printing.
