For HEINZMANN, close collaboration with universities and research institutes is a fundamental principle and a necessity for maintaning innovation leadership in areas such as reducing diesel-engine emissions and electric mobility.
A selection of our current collaborative projects with universities:
Projects are supported by both the German Federal Government and the EU and have lead to considerable developmental success in the past: The fuel-saving "Schluckspecht" (gas guzzler) diesel engine, designed by students from the Offenburg University of Applied Sciences, recently won the international Shell Eco-marathon. [ Detailed article from the Badische Zeitung newspaper ] In 2012, the project "Variable-speed generator", in collaboration with MOBIMA/KIT (based at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) and Hatz Motoren GmbH, was presented as part of the German Federal President's Environment Week.

Finally, these projects offer the students involved a chance to move on from their studies and into a challenging career in the industry. Make the most of our university events and meet employees to discuss possible student-based projects with HEINZMANN.
