VMI - Jan Andersson

Jan Andersson, who studied the technical master program, did not start up the design directly after school. He has always been interested in technology and to help people to reduce their daily hardships. 

Jan started his career by going to Africa as a volunteer to help people by contributing to a better infrastructure with access to water, electricity and better sanitation. Jan also met his wife during his work there. He stayed in Africa as a volunteer in approximately 2 years. After this he and his wife returned to Sweden.

Back in Sweden his career as a designer of Vibration instruments, vibration consultants and training of technician’s started. This resulted in a lot of products and some of our colleges in Sweden still use his design.

Jan has worked as a consultant in more than 12 countries, and he still has a big interest in helping people. Nowadays he supports children who have difficulty with math by voluntary studying with them in the evenings.
