Evonik meets the engineers of tomorrow
Company representatives from Evonik attended the UNITECH Mid Term Week as coaches and case study advisors and exchanged with talented engineering students.
At this year's UNITECH Mid Term Week, Evonik representatives were on site to offer students information about career opportunities as well as challenging case studies. UNITECH is a long-term partner network of Evonik for engineering students from all over the world. The international program participants came together at RWTH Aachen University to be coached by the corporate representatives and to work together on diverse case studies. These tasks are organized by the partner companies and deal with a certain topic of high industry relevance.
This year's task was dedicated to the topic "Technology application and partnership to restrict average global temperature rise to below 1.5˚C above pre-industrial levels" and was inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Evonik presented two case studies ("Digitalization as an Accelerator for improved sustainability assessments and decision making within Production and Technology" and "Blockchain in Supply Chain Planning") in which the students had the chance to show their skills. With the support of the coaches and case advisors from Evonik, the students managed the tasks and generated results which are helpful for the operational and strategic development of the company.
UNITECH International is a network of leading European technical universities and international companies. Within twelve months, highly talented engineering students complete a semester abroad at one of the partner universities, an internship abroad at one of the partner companies and complete three coaching modules on intercultural cooperation, teamwork and communication. The main idea of the program is to grant companies early access to highly qualified engineering students and to prepare them for the professional world. Evonik is one of the founding members of UNITECH. In this context, Employer Branding organizes workshops and events together with representatives from segments and business units to get in touch with the engineers of tomorrow and to attract them to the company.
