Education and training

We are dedicated to the principle of acting locally. In other words, the areas where we pursue business are areas where we support training.

In Nuremberg, where our company is headquartered, we support the Civil Engineering faculty at the  Technischen Hochschule Nürnberg Georg Simon Ohm, (University of Technology) by sponsoring a lecture hall and by awarding scholarships, working student contracts or work placements in order to bring students one step closer to their aspired careers. By arranging guest lectures on the specific features and challenges of construction in European and non-European countries we would like to share our long-standing practical experience with the students. Furthermore, we offer the possibility of dual system studies in different forms. For our students, it often means the chance to gain practical work experience in one of our infrastructure projects in Africa.

At the universities in our project countries we also award scholarships and offer to the student the possibility to get to know our company and the local projects in the frame of a work placement. So, we are involved in the Université des Sciences et Techniques de Masuku in Franceville, Gabon.

In addition we are training local staff in different sections of technique and administration in all our projects. This training is often combined with training periods at our headquarters in Nuremberg.
