2014 UAS7 ALUMNI WORKSHOP


On Saturday, November 8, 2014, the UAS7 NY Office hosted its 4th annual Alumni Meeting at the German Consulate General in New York.

 

The UAS7 Alumni Network North America has been growing to more than 200 students over the last couple of years, most of whom previously studied at one of the UAS7 member universities through the Study and Internship Program (SIP). 

For this year’s meeting, UAS7 NY was delighted to welcome an interesting group of ten UAS7 Alumni most of whom are currently working as young professionals in the fields of business, engineering, and the sciences.

 

Along with the alumni group, UAS7 NY also welcomed a fantastic group of presenters from the US and Germany:  The first speaker, Mr. Tobias Eckart from Munich University of Applied Sciences, kicked off the presentations by discussing the ambiguous relationship between “German Angst and German Engineering”. Mr. Eckart’s cultural analysis was followed by Prof. Ingo Stadler’s presentation about Germany’s goal of achieving 100 percent reliance on renewable energy. Prof. Stadler, joined the alumni meeting from the Institute for Renewable Energy at the University of Applied Sciences Cologne, and specifically focused on the systemic challenges facing the German “Energiewende”. The third speaker, Mr. Andreas Heidenreich, is the Master Brewer from Paulaner Brewery in NYC. Mr. Heidenreich shared insights into the “Science and Practice of German Beer Brewing” where he not only explained the brewing processes, but also highlighted what’s involved in introducing a German beer onto the international market. Each of the presentations were followed by interesting discussions where all participants were able to share their own professional perspectives.

 

The day concluded with a tour and dinner at Paulaner Brewery in New York City’s East Village. All participants agreed that this meeting was a wonderful opportunity to meet old and new friends, and to reconnect to Germany.
