Students took part in the competition with their semester project “Construction of an angle grinder”. Groups and individuals who handed in a sound documentation in addition to carrying out the assigned task qualified for the contest. Participation in the competition for the FERCHAU Advancement Award was made possible by the Chair of Design and Drive Engineering as part of the course “Machine elements – Drive Engineering”.
Husemann studied at the University of Paderborn himself and congratulated the award recipients: “We are proud of your enthusiasm. The time invested will pay off in your future career.” Husemann emphasized that engineering sciences are a promising subject and FERCHAU Engineering GmbH approaches highly qualified graduates early on. “We are interested in graduates who see the big picture and work on their social competence during their studies. Acquiring this competence through e.g. team work in semester projects and social commitments are essential qualifications for an ideal career start.”
