in the metal and electrical industry, and subsequently the girls and

which are considered typical for girls. With our participation in the

for a vocation in the technical field," explained Dr. Margarete

Award Ceremony at RWTH (Aachen University)
at the university? Let me put it this way: university is like a
jungle. If you survive it you can call yourself a 'survivor'. And I
am the tiger," the Rector of RWTH (Aachen University) Professor
Ernst Schmachtenberg (Doctor of Engineering) told me, a fresher,
looking down from the stage into the faces of around 500 people. As a
result of his ability to laugh at himself, as well as his honesty, my
initial nervousness during the panel discussion on the stage quickly
November 5, 2010 around 300 scholarship holders met in order to
celebrate their ceremonial admission to the North Rhine-Westphalian
Education Fund together with their sponsors from industry and friends
of the university.
a "fresher" I was a genuine rarity among so many older
students. After my A-levels in June 2010 I began my studies at RWTH
(Aachen University) in the subject of "Industrial Engineering -
Mechanical Engineering" in the following winter semester.
NRW Education Fund was set up in 2009 by the North Rhine-Westphalian
state government. Since the winter semester of 2009 young students
with excellent academic achievements have been supported financially
for the first time. Half of the money stems from state funds, with
the other half coming from industry and private individuals.
my sponsors, DEUTZ AG, Mr Strecker, Head of Human Resources, and Ms
Pölking-Huhn, Human Resources Development Officer, took part in this
ceremony. They followed my panel discussion with the Rector on the
stage very closely and later presented me with my scholarship
certificate. In a relaxed atmosphere over canapés and a champagne
reception we had a good opportunity to get to know one another and
discuss how we would be working together in the future.
am delighted with the trust placed in me and the commitment to
sponsor a fresher. Ultimately the scholarship gives me the additional
motivation and the financial freedom to escape the "tiger"
and successfully cope with the "jungle".
