International Engineering Fair
Industry seeks young professionals...
... and the International Engineering Fair organizers meet its needs. After a two-year break the JobFair project will be here again, responding to the new demands of employers for skilled workers. "After a period of stagnation, a lack of young professionals in engineering and other industries is again beginning to show, which a sign of continuing recovery. The JobFair should help solve this problem," Jiří Rousek explained. Purpose of the JobFair project which was held last at MSV 2008 is to facilitate contacts between employers in different industries, and job seekers, including students.
An attractive contest for young mechanical engineers in CNC machine tools programming continues at the fair at the same time, while in the past years it received a very favourable response. It is organised by the Association of Engineering Technology and the young contestants produce a programme specified by a drawing directly on site within a time limit. The best results of their work are directly applied to the exhibited machines and the winners take away a workpiece made according to their programme.
The Technology Transfer and Innovation project enters its third year – a trade fair contact centre with a presentation of universities and scientific research capacities offered to the industry. Technical universities and research centres will be provided space in Hall A1, and again there will also be a foreign exhibitors, among them the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
