Enrico Schulz, a Pepperl+Fuchs employee in the Application Engineering Development department, commenced battle as part of the 'Green Birds' team. The team is made up of students and graduates from the Hochschule Mannheim, and trainees and employees from Joseph Vögele AG and Pepperl+Fuchs GmbH. "We all have different areas of expertise, but share a passion for technology and fiddling," says Enrico Schulz. Working alongside the Hochschule Mannheim and Pepperl+Fuchs, Joseph Vögele AG was the team's main sponsor. "We see just how committed the young people are to prepare for the competition and how it pays off. As well as having a passion for technology and a creative mind, trainees are above all expected to work in a team. What's more, the competition allows our trainees to also expand their professional skills," explains Thomas Bayer, Head of Training for Electrical Engineering at Joseph Vögele AG.
