14 students from the Joseph-Haydn Gymnasium visited JOEST for a day

In March, interested students from Senden visited JOEST for a day and got to know the job of a Product Designer/ Constructing Engineer.

They were welcomed by the managing director, Dr. Marcus Wirtz. After that, the class was given a tour of the company’s facilities by a JOEST Construction Engineer and examined multiple machines. Authentic tests could be presented with ready-made screens and troughs.

Next, the students were shown how to use a CAD plotting program. Furthermore, they found out what the daily routine of Construction Engineers looks like, and what sorts of tasks await them.

Moreover, the class made a 3D Faro Scan of an empty warehouse with JOEST employees. These scans can measure the dimensions of a room and be used to generate a 3D model. The models are used to determine to available space for a machine.

One of JOEST’s former trainees told the students what it is like to become a product designer and what to expect when balancing a schedule at the company and at school. 

Finally, the students had the chance to ask any unanswered questions and share their impressions.

To allow an insight into the work environment, JOEST is happy to present the various occupational areas to interested students.
