Friedrichshafen, March 14, 2013. At the 2013 IBO exhibition, Tognum, the specialist for propulsion and power solutions, and its subsidiary MTU Friedrichshafen will be giving visitors a glimpse of the wide range of vocational training the company has on offer. In Hall A3, Stand 300, trainees will be presenting the opportunities available at entry level at Tognum – from mechatronics to marketing and from apprenticeships to courses of dual university and practical study. To give visitors a concrete idea of the company’s products, the exhibition stand will also showcase a 12-cylinder mtu Series 1600 PowerPack which will later go into operation in a railcar.
“The choice of a career is often difficult for young people. We are offering school students and their parents the chance to actively experience different vocational areas in order to form an initial impression of training at Tognum,” explained Martin Stocker, head of training at Tognum. In a specially constructed cinema, a new film will provide an insight into the world of training at Tognum. Those who pay particularly close attention to the film will have the chance to take part in a quiz and possibly win an Apple iPad mini.
Whilst trainees explain the most important aspects of jobs in the commercial sphere and set visitors typical trainee tasks to solve, industrial mechanics will be on hand offering the chance to drill and assemble various pieces at the workbenches. School students who register at the IBO Information Stand to take part in the `Educational Initiative – Experience Training´, will be able to assemble and test their own mini-diesel engine. And electronics trainees will be using a series-production model to demonstrate the complexities of the control system for an automated plant.
There will certainly be plenty to capture visitors’ interest on the exhibition stand. Apart from studying facts on the company and its products and information about commercial and technical careers, visitors will be able to talk to students from the Cooperative State University in order to find out more about bachelor degree courses in engineering, electro-technology, business and engineering, business administration or international business.
