About Leerkes Engineering

My name is Dennis Leerkes and I was born and raised in Deventer. Since 2019, I have been working as a freelance electrical engineer. As my business began to flourish, I established a private company with a holding structure.

Prior to this, I served as an electrical mechanic and diver in the Royal Dutch Navy before starting my career as an Eplan drawer in shipbuilding in 2008. Eventually, I relocated to the beautiful region of Drenthe where I successfully completed projects for several clients in the northern Netherlands.

Over time, I specialized in Eplan Electric P8, mastering all of its functionalities and capabilities. Additionally, I have gained proficiency in other engineering tools, including Autocad and Typical Manager.

In 2017, I obtained my Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering through evening and weekend classes while still working. My coursework emphasized energy supply, with a focus on energy generation, transportation, and storage. For my graduation project, I implemented the NEN-EN-IEC 614369-1 standard within a company, researching its existing implementation and providing written and oral recommendations for further integration.

My versatility and multi-skilled experience across various sectors make me a valuable asset. Additionally, I possess a professional-level proficiency in various engineering tools and the Microsoft Office package, as well as programming languages such as Delphi, Visual Basic for Applications, and C.
