My name is Alexander Wöber and I’m a second-year electronics engineer apprentice for industrial systems based in Ludwigsburg. In September 2017, I was given the opportunity to complete a four-week internship abroad in Barcelona. After hearing about the invitation to enter this project from my boss Ursula Fritz and speaking to my colleagues Florian Senft and Anastasia Doulgkeri, […]

When hearing the name ‘Under Pressure’, I’m sure for many of you Queen’s hit song from the 80s will come to mind. In this instance, however, we’re talking about a team name that perfectly describes a certain aspect of our work. This is not to say we are working under unwanted pressure, […]
While this might sound strange, it was actually my case. When I started my school career at the age of 7 (in 1987), I never thought that I would be 37 on my last day of school. I had different goals back then. Like many children, […]
Both my private and professional lives changed dramatically last year. At the start of 2016, I was working at MANN+HUMMEL Ludwigsburg as an Injection Moulding Shift Mechanic. By the end of the year, my wife and I were living over 4,500 miles away in Dunlap, […]
I write this blog as my two-week internship at MANN+HUMMEL is coming to an end. This internship started off as a requirement in order to successfully complete my Grade 10 but I considered this opportunity to be able to do an internship in my area of interest at a young age as bliss. […]
The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), Air Zoo museum, and local companies from the west Michigan area have a goal to instill in one day a rudimentary impression on young girls that science, math, art and problem solving is a world they can find their dream career. […]
In September 2016, I began an apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic at MANN+HUMMEL in Ludwigsburg. While I may not have been here for that long, I can honestly say that this is my dream job!
I always intended to graduate from secondary school and pursue a career, […]
The day-to-day work of a development department leaves little room to explore the seemingly impossible. That’s why I find it so refreshing to take part in the ten-week project module with the students from Reutlingen University. We give the students a real-life design assignment and they develop ideas and potential solutions. […]
At Reutlingen University our engineering courses are designed to combine both academic theory and practical experience. One of the highlights of the bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering is the project module completed in the sixth semester, which sees our budding engineers working on real-life industry design projects and presenting their findings to industry representatives. […]
After my graduation and working for nearly 10 years in India, I decided to pursue my MBA from Hochschule Pforzheim, Germany. Pforzheim Business School not only offers a well-structured course, it also cooperates closely with various companies on projects, guest lectures and excursions to various industries so that students can get practical know-how.

Sun, sea, sand and palm trees, boys with surfboards and girls in hot pants with bare midriffs, all suntanned and wearing sunglasses – welcome to California! This is the California that you know from movies.
But the reality is rather different. I’m in Goleta, […]
From laser sintering to hot gas welding, MANN+HUMMEL GmbH is always at the forefront when it comes to new technologies. The training workshop at the Ludwigsburg site recently acquired a 3D printer for the trainees and students on dual training programmes to enhance their ‘hard skills’. […]
It is mid-September 2016, the suit cases are packed and we are going for 4 month to the ‘sunny’ Bolton in England. What do we do there? Study – and more. And why?
We, Sabrina Herrmann and Katrin Zimmermann, […]
Whether it’s “vamos a la playa!” or “où est la piscine” there are certain obligatory set phrases which instantly spring to mind when we think about foreign languages. Unfortunately, they don’t always have the desired effect and often fail to impress the locals as we might have hoped. […]
What do pupils expect from their future careers? What does it mean for them to work independently and as part of a team? MANN+HUMMEL has been gaining an insight into precisely these questions through its youth outreach program, which has been running in conjunction with the Gottlieb-Daimler secondary school in Ludwigsburg since 2008.
