Dipl. Ing. Gerd Seligmann studied precision engineering and microtechnology at the University of Applied Sciences in Munich. He completed his diploma dissertation at the Max Planck Institute for Biochemistry in Planegg in cooperation with the Technical University in Munich Garching. The content of this dissertation was the microscopic grain size determination of biogenic suspended particles in great water depth.
As a development and design engineer, Mr. Seligmann was responsible for product development and assembly of different types of aeroplanes and helicopters, among others in the fields of interior and system installation. The focus in the interior area was on lightweight constructions using fibre composite materials. Another project in this area was the interior air conditioning and bleed air preparation as well as the installation of an emergency system for pipe bursts.
Subsequently, he worked as a construction documentation examiner for the installation and approval of aircraft construction structures for jet planes, civil Airbuses and especially for military transporters. This includes the approval of all parts of the frame structure consisting of lightweight metal components for the front, middle and rear sections of wide-body aircraft.
In a project at Zeiss, he was involved in the development of a new generation of transmission electron microscopes in the field of vacuum technology and microscopy.
Since January 2019 Mr. Seligmann has been working as a patent engineer in Munich. Mr. Seligmann is a technical expert preparing for the qualification as a European patent attorney.
