"In 2017 I completed my Bachelor’s thesis on the topic "Training of Reduction Cores during the Production of Chamotte and Ways of Reducing this Phenomenon” at G&S. From the raw material extraction via laboratory up to the finished product I got a good insight.

I liked the time during my work very much, especially because my colleagues were so nice and supportive. They always helped me with thought-stimulating ideas and suggestions when I had difficult problems to sort out."

"The mining tradition of my homeland - the Erzgebirge – had already a huge impression on me at an early age. This was a reason for choosing as course of studies "Geotechnics and Mining" at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. During my studies I received a broad spectrum of engineering and scientific knowledge. The focus was on geotechnics, mechanical engineering and raw material extraction, and also on the environment and re-cultivation. Theory and practice complement each other perfectly, the university has its own research and teaching mine. Contact with various companies is especially important for training. In addition to my studies, I had a special mining qualification confirmed by the Saxon Oberbergamt. The training requires that you complete shifts in different mining branches. After opencast- and deep-shaft mining, salt, lignite, marble I finally went to the Westerwald, where clay is extracted.
Company Goerg und Schneider initially supported me through the German Scholarship and in this way we came into contact. I also wanted to get to know about this raw material, its extraction and the company behind it. The internship in the family business offered a variety of advantages and opportunities. I profited above all from the good support and the short distances. After getting to know the company and its locations, I was directly entrusted with my own tasks.

On one hand these included classic engineering work, together with the technical manager I developed a concept for the development and securing of a new construction site. The balance between personal responsibility and support was a decisive factor. On the other hand, I was assigned the task of taking care of the approval of a measure under mining law. The operating plan is the most important instrument in mining. Here I could supplement study theory with practical experience. In no other internship I had the opportunity to gain such detailed insights into this working field of the mining engineer.

The good support and close cooperation with the colleagues gave me the feeling of being part of the company after only a few weeks. The experience I gained was particularly valuable for my future career. This was also reflected in later application procedures, in which I was repeatedly asked about my internship at Goerg und Schneider. The special mining qualification required that I worked as an intern in many different companies, the internship at Goerg und Schneider was by far the best!"
