As a field sales consultant for A-B-T, Bob Assel usually is busy visiting one of his client companies. Once every two weeks though you can find him attending classes at Dosign Academy. Here, he follows the two-year vocational course Instrumentation Engineering. And to his liking: "The training programme fits well with my work and the teachers are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable."
In 2014, Bob completed his studies in Aerospace Engineering successfully. He then went looking for a job where he could combine technology and commerce. Such a position he has found in Tilburg at A-B-T, a specialist vendor of flowmeters with years of experience in virtually every industry. "As a field sales consultant, I visit new or existing customers to discuss applications for which flowmeters are needed," says Bob. "Applications range from measuring the water stream inside a coffee machine up to gauging the amount of gas produced at a North Sea platform."
