Sebastian Nierfeld

M.Sc. in Engineering


Sebastian Nierfeld, born in 1989, was confronted with the continuously growing demand for innovative production technologies as a result of shorter product lifecycles during his studies of mechanical engineering at the University Duisburg-Essen. In 2012, Sebastian Nierfeld completed his Bachelor degree in the field of mechanical engineering at the University Duisburg-Essen, with the main focus of his work being placed on generative manufacturing processes which are increasingly relevant for the industrial production and subject to a high dynamic of technical innovation.

Afterwards, Sebastian Nierfeld intensified his knowledge in the area of generative manufacturing processes in the course of his Master studies of mechanical engineering with the specialization in product engineering at the Institute of Product Engineering (IPE) in Duisburg. In this context, he prepared a master thesis focussing on a conception for an improved process management using infrared analysis. He successfully completed his Master studies 2014.

Following completion of his studies, Sebastian Nierfeld joined the firm of VON ROHR Patent Attorneys as a patent trainee with the aim to become a patent attorney.
