The MetalDays took place in their 10th edition this year and we could invite 30 students this year to come to Leoben and get to know the study program of metallurgy.
After this reception, the first excursion to the Erzberg took place. There the students had the chance to visit this impressive iron ore deposit and to visit the old mine there.
In the evening our traditional welcome BBQ took place and the students had the chance to get to know each other and some of the representatives of our chairs.
On Tuesday, our candidates got an introduction to the chair of nonferrous metallurgy and afterwards we visited the Voestalpine Stahl Donawitz. In the steel plant, they has the possibility to get great impressions from the steel industry in Austria and due to the high temperatures, they had to sweat a little.
In the evening, there was the Alumni night with a few alumni of the metallurgical study program. There our students had the chance to ask all their questions and get a better idea about what is possible after studying in Leoben. As always, this evening was a highlight for many of our guests.
On Wednesday, we had another introduction of the chair of metal forming and ferrous metallurgy. After a quick lunch at the Mensa, we travelled to Graz and our guests could prove themselves at Exit the Room.
In the evening, we had a very nice end of the day in the Asia Spa in Leoben.
On Thursday, the last day of the MetalDays there were the final introductions of the chairs of simulation and casting.
After a final lunch together, we had to say goodbye to all the students.
We hope all of our guests enjoyed their days in Leoben, and hopefully we will see each other again in Leoben.
