During the summer months, the Chair of Ferrous Metallurgy gives a chance to students of local high schools to get to know the world of iron and steel.

Three students, Emilija, Alexander and Robert, receive a one-month internship, thankfully paid by the FFG, and work on our chair. They are involved in different projects, always well supervised by the doctoral students. Rather than being asked to get coffee, the internship gives them the chance to experience first-hand what research & development looks like in the field of metallurgy, and they actively contribute to the chair’s daily success. Finally, being able to get more insight in the world of iron and steel production, a field that they may only know from classroom, got the students hooked entirely.

We wish our interns all the best for their future and are looking forward to hearing from them again.
