Winners from all over the world are looking forward to InnoTrans 2021

 

Alena Conrads studied civil engineering at the Ruhr University Bochum and is currently working in Australia as a site engineer. “In particular the Tunnel Forum organised by STUVA e.V. and the promotion of young engineers aroused my interest in InnoTrans. I am already looking forward to seeing what I can expect during my visit to InnoTrans”, the young engineer said.

Tyler Kleinsasser is studying for a Master’s degree in civil engineering at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. “In addition to networking with students and professionals, with whom I may be working together in the future, I am also very much looking forward to learning more about the railway sector and transportation around the world at first hand,” says Tyler Kleinsasser.

Beema Dahal is a student at Boise State University. The up-and-coming civil engineer is looking forward to the opportunity to expand her knowledge through the innovations of the industry sector. ”My participation in the interesting lectures and discussions and talking with various exhibitors about my main interests will help me to gain more insight into railway infrastructure and technology. Participation in the InnoTrans Campus would also provide me with a platform to network directly with the experts and personnel managers about career opportunities in the railway sector and to guide me through my career objectives. Therefore, participation in InnoTrans 2021 will be very beneficial to broaden my horizon and also for my future prospects”.

In addition to the Career Award winners, all interested students, pupils and young professionals from the mobility sector are invited to come to InnoTrans to find out about the latest job and trainee offers from the more than 3,000 exhibitors and to make contacts that will shape their future.
