As the lead partner of Andretti Technologies, TE Connectivity has a rotational engineer program that puts one of TE’s automotive engineers inside the Andretti Autosport shop in Indianapolis, Indiana (USA). The resident engineer is responsible for advanced engineering expertise—finding new ways to improve the Andretti Team’s performance and co-creating and testing new TE products in the harsh environment of race cars.

Judith Henzel is the fourth TE resident engineer to work alongside the Andretti Formula E Team. Prior to assuming the role, Judith was a Project Manager for TE’s automotive business where she oversaw global technical infotainment projects for OEMs, working primarily with cable assemblies and connectors. Judith graduated with a degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden after an internship with Lufthansa Technique piqued her interest in airport operations and automotive engineering.

Attracted to motorsport since she was a child, which she attributes to watching Formula 1 with her father, Judith has been fascinated by the sport for years. During her time as a student, she combined her passion for the sport with her engineering studies when she joined her university’s Formula Student program. Judith assumed roles as a team member and team leader on both the technical and commercial sides, working on the powertrain and fuel consumption, while also managing team sponsors and marketing plans.

With this assignment Judith rejoins the world of motorsport to co-create new technologies and advance innovation with Andretti Technologies. Judith’s current projects with Andretti Technologies include aluminum wire harnesses and sensors.
