With a focus on the automobile industry, the Automotive Day provides students the chance to visit exhibition stands. Prestigious automakers and automotive suppliers take this opportunity to display their samples and to answer the students’ questions. Kautex was there along with the likes of Audi, Daimler, Porsche and many other OEMs and automotive suppliers.
More than 200 students, mainly from technical and natural sciences, and other visitors came to see the Kautex stand. Most of them have not heard about Kautex before and were very impressed by the complexity of our products and the various career opportunities we offer. In particular, they showed great interest in opportunities for internships, bachelor or master theses and direct entry positions as well as general career development potentials within the company.
Besides the great promotion by our Kautex stand-staff, three special exhibition pieces caught attention among the visitors: An “Audi Q5” and the respective tank, as well as a microscope to analyze samples of the Audi Q5 Tank cross-sections, which were displayed next to our stand. In specific, Michael Wieland, Engineer Analytic, demonstrated the students, how to measure the thickness of single plastic layers as well as how to evaluate the homogeneity of the regrind.
This not only allowed the visitors to have a look “behind the scenes” and see where our products are placed inside the car, but also helped us to demonstrate Kautex’ focus on research and validation.
