Lukas graduated from the University of Derby in 2020 with first-class BEng (Hons) in Motorsport Engineering. During his undergraduate studies he undertook an industrial placement at Jaguar Land Rover working in Prototype Manufacturing where he gained an insight into vehicle manufacturing learned how to apply Lean Manufacturing, assess feasibility of design and gained experience of technical analysis in a fast paced environment of Pilot Operations. He spent the summer of 2019 working in Race Engines and Quality Department at ŠKODA Motorsport where he gained an experience of working in a WRC 2 motorsport team. For his final year project he worked on Hybrid Powertrain Development for WRC 2 Application which mainly involved HEV modelling and simulation studies. He has a range of interests outside of University from training, motorsport, movies, PS4 and more.
