Follow-up report – Student event at HTL Bulme Graz Gösting

On 18th December 2019 Silicon Alps and cooperation partners have been invited to speak in front of students form the HTL Bulme Graz Gösting and inform about “job perspectives in the field of Electronic-Based Systems”. This event took place on the initiative of the directorate HTL Bulme Graz Gösting and various cooperation partners of the cluster.

The aim of this event was to introduce young potential professionals to electronics, microelectronics and software development in order to draw attention to possible professional fields within the Electronic-Based Systems sector. Silicon Alps Cluster had been proudly represented by three enterprises and three educational institutions from the tertiary sector. Infineon, NXP Semiconductors and ams AG seized the chance to inform young talents about job opportunities and career paths. Since companies will be increasingly dependent on skilled workers in the coming years, the prospects for excellent job opportunities seem very good. Therefore students were also interested by presentations of technical university (TU Graz), university of applied science (FH Joanneum) and Campus 02 in Graz, which gave  information about study programmes and more details about application procedure. Finally, the event was concluded with a discussion round in the plenum and individual consultation possibilities.

So far there is no decision whether the format will be continued in a similar way. Interested companies are welcome to show possible commitment to responsible project manager.

A special thank goes to all participants and the presenter at stage Peter Kargl.
