"It's a top priority for us to aid tomorrow's engineers today. We need young people who are excited about engineering and can generate creative ideas for innovative products. Simply put, such engineers make a company competitive and forward-looking. That's why Audi is a proud premium sponsor of the SACHEN MACHEN initiative,"underscores Dr. Widuckel.
This program seeks to promote the appeal of engineering careers and to provide support to up-and-coming students; to boost companies' innovative excellence;and to cement Germany's standing as a powerhouse of engineering and technology.
"Audi will continue to play a pivotal role in the job market and create excellent opportunities - particularly for engineers. We will continue to blaze trails in engineering and innovation. It is thus indispensable to rigorously promote young talent," explains Dr. Alfred Quenzler, Head of Personnel Marketing, Trainee Programs, and Recruitment at AUDI AG. He added that Audi would hire new personnel, particularly in Technical Development and Production, to pursue new fields of innovation as well as processes that improve and increase efficiency.
The trade show features several of Audi's technological highlights. Examples include the Audi A1 Sportback concept and a one-of-a-kind project in Germany:"Travolution", an application that manages the flow of traffic via optimized communication between traffic signals and vehicles. Moreover, Roman Schindlmaister, Head of Vehicle Concepts at AUDI AG, took part in Tuesday's panel discussion: "Energy Shortage: In the Dark in 30 Years?"
Audi is offering career counseling for aspiring specialists and professionals at the trade show. Today and tomorrow (April 23 and 24), interested parties can visit the Audi booth in Hall 2 to learn about employment opportunities at AUDI AG.
