MBtech – Education partnership between Esslingen University and MBtech

MBtech, with Engineers and Recruiting Team at „student meets company“, University of Esslingen, 13.10.2016.

As an engineering and consultancy service provider in the automotive industry, it is particularly important to MBtech to
be able to support the faculty for automotive engineering. The Esslingen University of Applied Sciences offers courses of study in Mechanical Engineering, Engineering Management, Electrical Engineering and IT, among others, and thus
educates potential future candidates for the company. Through this partnership, students primarily benefit from firsthand job offers and receive insights into the practical workings of the second-largest employer in Sindelfingen.


They are introduced to what is involved when professionally starting out in the automotive industry – and MBtech has already taken on several Esslingen graduates. In addition to its financial support, MBtech is also already involved with excursions and a mentoring program. This program supports students as they explore what exactly such a professional career involves, thus helping to achieve a positive balance between theory and practice. MBtech’s recognition of the high standard of education is appreciated by Bärbel Götz, Career Center employee and Program Director of the CrossMentES career mentoring program at the Esslingen University. “We are delighted that a top employer like MBtech has taken an interest in our students. Sponsorship of the Career Center enables us, alongside our educational mandate, to also provide students with quality support as they commence their professional careers.
