IGOR VIŠNJEVSKI

was born in 1976 in Vršac (Yugoslavia), where he attended primary school and the academic high school. After final examination, he initially pursued a professional sports career as a long jumper at sports club SCC in Berlin. Less later he began parallel with it his basic study period in Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University Berlin. During his stage studies Prof. Dr. D. Severin could inspire and allure him for practical engineering in the experimental hall at the Institute of Conveyor and Gear Technology at the Technical University of Berlin.

During his graduate studies, he worked as a student assistant at Prof. Dr. D. Severin and was entrusted with responsible third-party funds projects from industry and R&D as well as verification and certification of the brake systems. Due to the breadth of his field of application, he had the opportunity at an early stage to acquire a practical knowledge in the field of machine systems while studying and to make valuable contacts to special industry sectors.

So he gets to know the Danish brake manufacturer company Svendborg Brakes through an expertise for the company GE Energy, in which the elaborate full scale attempts were performed on flywheel mass test bench. After final degree at the TU Berlin as Dipl.-Ing. in Mechanical Engineering (field of study: General Engineering), he spends the next seven years in this company as head of the test center in Bünde (East Westphalia). This was followed by about three years at the company KTR Kupplungstechnik GmbH in Rheine, where he has applied his know-how and experience from the profession field in the development of new brake systems.

In 2015 after 15 years of industry experience he started his own business as a consulting engineer, freelancer and expert for braking systems, conveyors, hydraulic and pneumatic equipment and he has settled down in North Rhine Westphalia city of Bielefeld.
Mr. Višnjevski is a passionate designer who is at every development in body and soul and rejoices over every good running machine. He motivates and supports young people in their training or in their study of the technical professions and is active in “Richard Dawkins Foundation for Reason and Science”. He is still an avid athlete and basketball player and is practicing often Taiji and Zen meditation as balance.
