Three years later he founded the Steinbeis Transfer Center Software Engineering in Esslingen. The Transfer Center has developed extremely successfully since and established itself as a competent and reliable partner for individual IT solutions in the automation technology and automotive industry. Customers are supported with modern technology and processes regarding the conception and development of software as well as in terms of operating with Linux systems and networks.

With his Steinbeis Transfer Center at the interface with the University of Esslingen, Joachim Goll has managed to set an example for the successful and concrete implementation of knowledge and technology into practice. Precisely through the proximity to the University of Applied Sciences and an appealing working climate, he wants to be an attractive employer for graduates with their knowledge of current technologies and offers them the possibility of an extra occupational qualification up to a master´s or doctor´s degree.
Steinbeis would like to thank Joachim Goll for his constant constructive and trustful cooperation as the director of the Steinbeis Transfer Center Software Engineering and his successful commitment in concrete knowledge and technology transfer.
