Leuze electronic is engaging with the employees of tomorrow

By means of education partnerships with technical and commercial schools and universities, donations of teaching material, and special topic presentations, Leuze electronic is engaging with the employees of tomorrow.

Owen, March 3rd 2016 - The commercial school in Göppingen was very happy to be able to upgrade their learning factory for basic instruction in sensor systems and identification technology with eight new workplaces last year; this year, donations amounting to hundreds of thousands of Euros will be going to the universities of Esslingen and Reutlingen as well as the metal and electronic technology commercial school in Kirchheim unter Teck.

As a symbol of a whole europallet of MLC and MLD photoelectric sensors, Martina Schili, Marketing Content Manager Safety, presented a Leuze photoelectric sensor to Wolf Remppis, the head of electronic technology at the Max-Eyth-Schule in Kirchheim, on Tuesday, March 1st. “We are very pleased to receive this donation, which is worth the same as a mid-range car. The photoelectric sensors will be used for safety projects in our technology classes. Amongst other things, it will be used to secure a new robot cell” adds Peter Dobelmann, a teacher on the automation technology and mechatronics course.

“Leuze electronic cooperate with schools, acquaint students with our apprenticeship program, and allow them to get to know about the topic of work as early as possible” says Carina Gollmer, Training Officer at Leuze electronic. Currently, 11 trainees are employed at Leuze electronic. We train for the following occupations: Electrical engineers for devices and systems, industrial management assistant for international business management, as well as studies at the “Duale Hochschule” (cooperative state university) for computer science/electrical technology, and international business.
