Captains

The Captains of the Degree Programmes in Automation Technology play a particularly important role in the network. Since they are active in successful companies in the automation sector, they act as mentors and contact persons for our students.

Every academic year is assigned a Captain, which gives students insight into his/her activities, shares his/her experiences in the field with them and fosters team spirit and entrepreneurial thinking.

A Captain’s activities may include:

  • Giving a lecture and inviting a guest speaker
  • Hosting a Captain’s Dinner for his/her students (of course the nature of event is left to the discretion of the captain)
  • Offering consultation hours to his/her students
  • Giving a speech commemorating the graduation ceremony of “his/her” class

 

The Captains benefit from:

  • The opportunity to assign projects to students and use their potential
  • our internet platform www.campus02.at as a forum
  • Personal contact with students and the companies they work for
  • Contact to other Captains
  • Company presentation and advertisement in our Technical Report

 

(The company name of the captain may differ from the current one, because historical data are shown, when the captain was assigned to an academic year. This means that also a company may appear with its former company name)
