Smart Factory@Industry: Hands-On Industry Training
"The project gave me a very good insight not only about the working life at Daimler but also great exposure to a fast-paced, technology focused industry. I gained a lot of understanding about the development of innovation projects and the experience of working on a revolutionary topic was fantastic.
Finally, the Smart Factory project introduced and brought me into contact with the department at Daimler where I am currently working. It was a direct enabler for my job."
