Who am I?

My name is Fredrik Flornes Ellertsen. I was born and raised in Bergen, Norway, and I am in my 3rd year of my master's degree in Electronics Systems Design and Innovation at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The study programme was completely revised in 2014 based on a study of what the industry sought after in electronic system designers, so I am part of the very first cohort of the legendary ELSYS. Technology has always fascinated me, so I have known for a long time that I would some day enter a study programme like ELSYS.

What drives me?

I have been called unstoppable once I get traction on an idea or project. I spend a lot of my spare time doing various projects in computer science or electronics design, but in general I just play with whatever I can get my hands on - the latter hobby being something that has defined me ever since I was very young. Many appliances and gadgets have suffered exhaustive disassembly by my hands over the years, but in return I have gained a huge fascination with learning about how stuff works. Electronics play an ever increasing role in today's society, so by studying electronics, I am in turn learning about the mechanics that drive the world.
