Research and practical experience

Communicating effectively with you is of particular importance to us. University or college students are very welcome here. No matter whether you are interested in a practical work placement or an internship over a semester, you can contact us. This is just as true for thematic project work or degree dissertations. Meet highly specialised skilled professionals in our development departments, in sales or in administration. You can put your knowledge to the test with us. We look forward to hearing your point of view and to exchanging ideas regarding the latest scientific topics, realisations and developments as far as our materials are concerned. Profit from our process-related and application-related know-how.     

Many individuals in our company are involved in ensuring that this dialogue comes to fruition. For example, we have been cultivating relationships with regional and supra-regional colleges, universities and technical colleges.   

Joint research projects with colleges and universities and concrete allocation of vacant positions for practical work placements or final dissertations ideally combine theory and practice.
