"As a leader in the field of technology, W&H believes the excellent education of young talent to be at the foundation of its economic success. In sponsoring RWTH Aachen, we support the university in upholding its high academic standards. At the same time, we are able to raise our profile and promote W&H as an attractive place to work with the students enrolled there," explains Bernd Richter, Chief Human Resources Officer. "We are very happy about W&H's sponsorship because it allows us to finance projects for students that are not supported by public funding. In addition, I am delighted that our students can thereby recognize early on the opportunities offered by by companies such as W&H," adds RWTH Aachen rector Ernst Schmachtenberg.

Windmöller & Hölscher and RWTH Aachen have already been partnering for many years in the way of internships, student theses or a variety of excursions. RWTH Aachen University with its focus on the field of engineering is of particular importance for W&H. The lecture hall sponsoring is another step forward in strengthening these close ties that have proven to be profitable for both of us.
