The VDMA initiative Maschinenhaus

The VDMA initiative for student success

“Maschinenhaus – the campus for engineers” is VDMA’s initiative for increasing student success. In this case, greater student success means reducing the high drop-out rates and training more engineers for the labor market. But it also means offering high-quality curricula and practical training to prepare graduates for their later professional lives. With its “Maschinenhaus” initiative, VDMA has been supporting departments and schools of engineering at all German universities to improve their curricula through six scientific studies and five separate subprojects realized since the end of 2012. The aim is to highlight VDMA’s responsibility towards young talent and to help meet the high demand for engineers in mechanical and plant engineering.
