The 10th Engineer’s Day event for high school students was held in Lahr, Germany, with the opening presentation given by a Herrenknecht engineer.
The Max Planck High School hosted the event on 6 February 2020 to give pupils first-hand insight into engineering careers.
Due to the high demand in well-trained and qualified engineers for the German mechanical engineering industry, the aim of the half-day event was to inspire and motivate young individuals to embark on the career path.
Herrenknecht was an inaugural partner of Engineer’s Day, with Herrenknecht Project Engineer Arthur Miller opening this years’ event with a presentation on how engineering is more than just a career.
“I attended Engineer’s Day myself eight years ago when I was a pupil,” said Mr Miller.
“The good training tips and insights from back then were a good starting point for me to find my way to an engineering career.”
The cooperation between Herrenknecht and the Max Planck High School in education and the promotion of science and technology has a long tradition.
Herrenknecht Founder Dr Martin Herrenknecht says the company will remained committed to the event.
“It is very important to me that coming generations are well trained and educated so we can keep Germany at the forefront of global competition and master the challenges of the future,” said Dr Herrenknecht.
In addition to Herrenknecht, the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Daimler Sindelfingen, Schneider Electric GmbH and Schaeffler Technologies AG & CO. KG took part in Engineers Day.
