Belgrade, April 27th, 2023
Since high school I was mostly interested only in music and film, natural sciences are something that always managed to sneak into my free time simultaneously and provide a lot of answers to questions that are specifically connected to music and film.
Over time, things became more and more digitalized, so my interest in that direction grew more and more. At the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Department of Electronics, it was all studied in detail, but in the sea of all fields and areas of electronics that were being studied, I had the impression that I would not know exactly what I wanted to do.
Everything was ravishingly interesting, and everything was rigidly complicated. But I always thought about the sentence of one of the assistants in the first year “You will learn many subjects and many areas, but wait until the fourth year, then you will see the bigger picture of everything and your eyes will be opened to everything you have learned before”.
It was exactly like that. In the fourth year, I learned a lot of applicable things, but the subject Introduction to designing digital VLSI systems caught my attention. There I learned the basics of designing digital integrated circuits and integration on FPGA platforms.
There are a lot of interesting projects, making games, image processing, data manipulation and all that at a highly functional level and with absolute potential to be applied today. Since I wanted to deepen my knowledge in this area even more, I researched where I could do an internship in this area and thus applied to the internship program at Elsys, where I became even more convinced that this is what I want to do.
Today I work as a digital designer, and I face quite challenging things that are current in the modern world of digitization. Sometimes it can be seemingly unsolvable, but that feeling when all the pieces come together and the whole design works – priceless! It is simply unimaginable that a day goes by without me learning something new and pushing the boundaries in my career development ever so slightly.
