Hi there! I’m Schalk van Heerden, an engineer by training and technology professional from South Africa who loves contributing to the fields of process and control engineering, software, and multimedia. I cover a variety of projects with my skill and ability, and my work ethic is just like the country I come from: sunny and bright.
You don’t have to simply take my word for it when I say I have a background in as a chemical engineer – so here’s a little educational and vocational background:
I obtained my Bachelor’s in Chemical Engineering from North West University and B.Eng Honors in Control Engineering from University of Pretoria. I worked as a student engineer for NECSA, and a design engineer at Eskom, by the way. I have undertaken many projects and successfully finished an equal amount of projects too. My expertise includes water treatment, power plants, process control, and chemical engineering. And oh, programming. I love programming!
As a professional aspiring to make a major contribution to the world with my work, I have a work philosophy I believe in: find the box, and think. When it comes to engineering or development, I believe run of the mill work just doesn’t cut it. People demand innovation, something extra, and that is what I strive to deliver.
When I’m not completely invested in my work, I invest my energy and passion in sports, never missing out on a big game, and often yelling in front of TV. It’s my odd way of relaxing.
