THINK BIG! Our career event for students


think BIG! Career with construction machinery and building material machines

Fun and action with THINK BIG! – Live at bauma 2019

You want to know why you need all the things you learn in school?

We will show you with exciting participation actions and simulators and "do it yourself" that technology is fun. Find out what you can do and what interests you.

Watch our trainees at work on "Werkstatt Live!” They work on large machines such as wheel loaders and are also interviewed by moderators Mike & Ina Atig about training and future plans. The show runs every hour on the hour, lasts 20 minutes and is broadcast on large screens.

Ask our trainees and apprentices themselves why they are doing their training and how it works. Talk to students about technical courses of study and let them explain to you how a dual course of study differs from a "normal" course of study. Advantages and disadvantages. Here's your chance to talk to everyone: Trainees and students, experts, trainers, bosses. Ask for internships. Apprenticeships.

Here you can find out more about technical professions outside the mainstream. There are so many new technical trainings that might be just right for you. And not just for boys. Let our "Role Models" tell you about their experience as young women with work and education in technical professions.

Get to know well-known large companies, universities and institutions. In a relaxed atmosphere, with fun and games. These are all in here:

Last but not least: a visit to bauma is of course another highlight. Here you can see with your own eyes what innovative technology can achieve.

You can find THINK BIG! at bauma in the ICM foyer. We will be there for you all day from 8th to 14th April 2019.

Admission is free for students up to the age of 14 (student card!).
