For this year’s Siemens Day at RWTH Aachen on June 1st, 20 Siemens employees from various devisions made their way to the SuperC building to meet motivated students and offer an insight into the individual opportunities at a company with more than 348.000 employees.

In Siemens’ “Global University Challenge” students from eight universities worldwide participated in developing ideas for enabling the “digital twin”. The digital twin refers to the availability of a digital representation of machines, components or manufacturing processes and thus is an important key factor for future industries. Five finalists got the chance to refine and prototype their ideas for gathering information for the digital twin and ensure product quality in an onsite Hackathon at the gasturbine manufacturing facility in Berlin in March 2017.
