The Night of Technology 2019 in Cologne – Discovering Diversity

Friday, 28 June 2019, will be a great day, a great evening, a great night – I already know 😉

It’s “Night of Technology” in Cologne again and I’m an avowed fan of events of this kind that take place all over the world. As TÜV Rheinland press spokesman, I can once again tell many people what exciting, important, and challenging jobs my colleagues have. Jobs that enable us to lead a safe life in dealing with technology and to treat resources with respect. Science, research, and high-tech all join forces at this event and open the otherwise closed doors for one night. We at TÜV Rheinland also show everyone who is interested the connections between technology and the natural sciences. At the same time, we provide information about unusual jobs and exciting working environments in our company. By the way, as a young person I would have liked to have had an insight into the professional world: vivid and very close to the subject.

A dream comes true

This night my dream will come true when engineers, scientists, and technicians open their doors and discover their skills as entertainers, enlighteners, and moderators in their field of expertise. Each of these events reinforces the awareness of how important it is to make expertise entertaining for the general public and to make people want to work in these fields. This night they meet curious people, people with a thirst for knowledge or people who simply enjoy new, fresh knowledge.

Diversity in all programme items

That’s why it’s such a special night for me – and TÜV Rheinland in Cologne has been there right from the start. This year’s programme includes the toy test, the newsroom, the Innovation Space and the test of swimming aids. Each individual item on the programme offers an exciting glimpse into fascinating work environments. Preparations are already in high gear in our laboratories and test halls.

On 28 June at 6 p.m. it will be the starting signal for the seventh Night of Technology. This night offers a lot: science, variety, information, technology, clarity – and for me always a lot of fun.

The employees and trainees from the training workshop also had fun preparing for the Night of Technology. Thomas Külsen, head of the training workshop, will tell you more.

Our training workshop for mechatronics engineers is picking up speed. The apprentices from the first year of their apprenticeship with the largest number of trainees are already looking forward to the upcoming transition to the second year. Time is flying, the team has grown together, the tasks are assigned. Together, we have converted the company from one apprentice per year to six apprentices. Despite good planning, it was a lengthy process, and the change of location was only a drop in the ocean…

Now follows the next step: to fill up the new training workshop. The establishment of high-quality training is a long-term goal and requires suitable applicants on the one hand, and departments willing to accept them on the other. It is difficult to find both, as we are still new and unknown. So get out of the shadows, into the night of technology! Let’s use this event to make ourselves known!

Night of Technology – here we come!

After initial skepticism, the entire team was quickly on board. Everyone proudly wants to show what they have learned and created. While the trainees prepare the workshop and prepare demonstrations, the instructors take over the ( extremely demanding ) organizational part. Participation in meetings, checking the safety of the visitors, creating texts and programmes…

But everyone is looking forward to 28 June! Everyone is looking forward to YOU when you visit us!
