The winter semester 2022 is ready to start at universities across Germany – and so is a new funding period for the “Deutschlandstipendium” initiative from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. At its headquarters in Mönchengladbach, Trützschler has been one of the sponsors for seven years.
Basically, the Deutschlandstipendium aims to give talented young people an early chance to make contacts and explore engagement opportunities with well-known companies in the region. Ideally, this will lead to long-term cooperation or permanent employment.
In recent years, Trützschler has supported several students at the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Mönchengladbach, aslo includes specialized internships or writing final theses in a wide range of disciplines – such as mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and data analytics.
Yifei Song is one of those talented young people. The IT student has been a permanent employee at Trützschler since graduating.
Tobias Hölters, a former scholarship holder in electrical engineering with a focus on automation technology said, “Thanks to the financial relief provided by the Deutschlandstipendium, I was able to concentrate fully on my studies. In addition to the individual professional support, it was also great that my supervisor shared practical tips about starting a career. It’s even nicer that I was able to begin my career directly at Trützschler after completing my master’s degree.”
This year, Trützschler will support eight scholarship holders. We are particularly pleased that we are now also sponsoring the RWTH Aachen, alongside our support for the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences in Mönchengladbach.
Three scholarships will be awarded at the RWTH Aachen in the fields of mechanical engineering with a focus on textile technology, or in electrical engineering.
Jan Herzog, a former scholarship holder in the field of electrical engineering, now Division Manager of Electric/Electronical Production at Trützschler said, “I would recommend this scholarship to everybody. The deep insights into the company open up a wide range of interesting topics, excellent networking opportunities and great career prospects.”
