My name is Mohammed Faysal Ahmad, I´m 27 years old, and grew up in a small town in Bavaria, to be a little more specific in "Oberfranken" in Hof. There I finished my "Abitur". Subsequently I moved to Hanover in order to study Economical Engineering with the main focus on engineering. So how do I find myself now at Continental? A very good friend of mine, who I got to know in Hanover, works for Continental and this motivated me to apply for an internship/Bachelor thesis there. My assignment worked out so well, that I was invited to be part of the ProMotion Program, a development program for students at the company. Now I am doing an internship at Continental in Cuautla, Mexico and plan to finish my Master's degree in Berlin next year.
I am working within Continental since August 2009. I started as a student in HR CEP Plant Timisoara and after 1 year I was nominated as Training & Development Specialist for this location. I work with an awesome team on different projects focused to develop and sustain the professional growth of our colleagues. I maintain also a strong relationship with our training and development suppliers in order to assure the best quality of the services. I work in a great environment that gives me the freedom to act in the same direction with my believes.

Mexican, Biomedical Engineer
I am working at Icheon branch, South Korea. I am honored to be given a chance to run my story. I majored mechanical engineering as an undergraduate, and continued my studies in industrial engineering as a graduate to learn about algorithm, data structure, geometrics, and programming. My thesis was on bioinformatics. I started my career in the quality division, and now I am conducting various improvement activities including Plant data and computer management in the Continental Business System (CBS) team. My life at Continental has been a blessing. The world is now buzzing about the 4th generation manufacturing revolution, namely Industry 4.0 and Smart factory – I hope to contribute to the company as a data scientist based on my academic and hands-on knowledge.
Continental opened a site in California’s hub of high tech in late 2013. I am Head of IES Silicon Valley in the Interior Division, developed the Continental office, make and keep up contacts with startups and IT corporations, and I am exploring new business segments.
After I completed my studies of economical mathematics, I started working for Continental in 2011 in central Logistics. In my first year, where I was still working as an external employee, I was responsible for Allocation and Shortage Management for products with limited capacity, before I was offered an internal position as project manager for process improvements in Logistics. Here I lead several projects with focus on transportation, packaging and duties. In February 2015, I switched again to a new department, this time with the task of Target Costing in Business Controlling. Having worked in several different jobs within Continental, I highly appreciate the mindset of diversity and open-mindedness in the company, which encourages to experience different functions, divisions and cultures.
I currently do my masters in mechanical engineering at the Technical University Braunschweig, Germany. With the opinion that a tire is just a boring black piece of rubber, I started in 2010 with an internship in the Prototype area at Continental in Hannover (Engineering Tires) resulting a membership in the ProMotion Program. I learned that a tire and the tire building process is the opposite of boring. I stayed as a working student in the Prototype area and wrote my Bachelor thesis with Continental, too. After my Bachelor thesis I got the opportunity to work for 3 month as intern in the Tire plant Mt. Vernon, USA.

Hi! My name is Nikki. I've been with Continental Automotive since 2011 as HR Business Partner of Instrumentation & Driver HMI. Other than being a Business Partner, I’m also responsible for the location’s Employer Branding and Recruitment matters. It has been a challenging and exciting experience working with the Company. I’m given ample opportunities to work on different projects and interact with people from all over the world.

After two apprenticeships as a wholesale merchant and as a car mechanic I started studying industrial engineering and management. To focus more on the technical perspective I did my masters in mechanical engineering. During studies I spent ½ year in California and 3 month in China. My career at Continental started in May 2015 as a DRIVE Automotive Graduate Trainee and I work in the division Powertrain for the Business Unit Engine Systems.
I am working in Continental since October 2010. I started as product developer for the departement `The Amerikas`. So I developed commercial tires (trucks and busses) for Brazil mainly and as well some articles for the US market. Oct 2013 I am movedc to Jundiai / Brazil (close to Sao Paulo). Here I am a `lonely` engineer between around 150 marketing and sales colleagues :-) I still work for product development Truck & Bus tires - now I make the 'translation' between our Marketing & SalesTeam here in Brazil and our central Research & Development department in Hannover. The language of these two groups is quite different, so that a good translator helps to ensure that our customer get the products they need with the most suitable technology we have available. My former experience as tire developer helps me a lot! And my portuguese is improving every day :-) Before I started working at Continental, I used to be a professional road cyclist. With my cycling team as well as with the German National Team I competed in World Cups, World Championships and international stage races all around the world (e.g. Giro d'Italia donna; Tour de L'Aude (womens pendant of the tour de France where we could win the Team Time Trial in 2009). You can imagine that our bikes were equipped with the best of Continental only ;-) (Tires: Force&Attack (training); ContiCompetition (competition))
I have been with Continental for over 16 years in a variety of Finance related functions. After recently returning from almost 5 years in Mexico, I am now heading our integration efforts for the Automotive group in North America.

I continue expanding my network via different projects, events, and our ConNext internal social media tool. Each day I learn something new about this very dynamic global company that has over 140 years of operations. Hopefully you may benefit from the insights I have gained over my many different experiences.

I joined the Continental family in 2013, when I was starting my 6-months internship at Continental in Regensburg. As I specialized in Controlling and Accounting within my Bachelor at OTH Regensburg I gained my first practical experience in Local R&D Controlling. I really liked the internationality and the trust that my supervisors where giving to me, so I decided to in-depth my practical knowledge and applied as a working student in Operations Controlling. After having a great time at this department I decided to change to Project Controlling where I was working with 10 engineers. As I will complete my studies this summer I am currently writing my bachelor thesis at Strategic Cost Management in Division Interior. Beside all this I’m also business team leader of the Formula Student Team Regensburg. There I could arouse my interest to engineering and cars. The creation of a successful business plan concept for our Formula Student race car 2015 will top off my activities in this project.
I joined Continental (formerly Siemens VDO) in 2004, right from the University bench. I graduated at Politechnical University of Cluj Napoca, which is a city 360km away from Timisoara in Romania. I came to work in Timisoara submitting a CV to a job shop. After two interviews I was on my way to Timisoara :-).

Hi! I am Christaline, HR Executive in Continental Automotive Singapore. Apart from my business partnering role, I am also proud to say that I am also the wellness lead for our company. My journey in wellness begun when I was asked by my manager if there's any additional role that I would like to take on? I replied, "Something fun!" and the rest were all history.

Be part of the passion - Be HAWKS! Having been in the Formula Student for quite some time, I have not only had the chance to meet a whole bunch of interesting people and some very good friends, but also made nonpareil professional experiences. Originally from the textile sector, I totally fell for the field of automotive engineering when I first saw the car our team has built on the track.
With a strong background in Physics and Astrophysics I have joined the team "Video Sensors" for automotive applications in Regensburg in 2004. Eversince this topic is just skyrocketing and never getting boring. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are nowadays provided not only just for high-prized luxuray cars but also as active safety features for everyone. From being a development engineer responsible for various camera algorithms I got fixed up with vehicle testing. Within the newly formed and fast growing Business Unit ADAS at Lindau I finally got the chance to build up the vehicle test and integration department. Starting out with 5 people in 2008, now over 150 engineers and test drivers world wide are integrating and testing our ADAS products intensively in the field. For the ADAS vehicle test department the sun never sets. There is always 24/7 driving activity around the globe.
