Promoting Education and Training

Rheinmetall is also committed to promoting interest in technology, science and craft in the areas where it is located. Understand technology and try it out for yourself. This is the slogan under which young people are given the opportunity – as part of school partnerships, for example – to get to know technology through hands-on tasks and develop a better understanding of links between technology and commerce by gaining an early insight into the industry.

The Rheinmetall Group companies also participate in Germany-wide action days and offer internships in a wide range of disciplines to school students or in the context of new vocational training or retraining for adults. Over the course of 2018, a total of 297 interns (previous year: 273) gained their first experiences of day-to-day company life.

With the Rheinmetall Scholarship Program, we are involved in the Deutschlandstipendium, a scholarship set up by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). With this, we are pursuing the aim of attracting young high potentials from various disciplines to Rheinmetall and provide grants for 16 students (previous year: 20) at four German universities (Bremen, Hanover, Magdeburg and Munich). The students are looked after under the talent retention program “Next Generation Talents”, which includes mentoring and support programs in addition to company-specific training modules.

The increasing electrification of the drive train leads to diverse possibilities for increasing efficiency and further reducing emissions from combustion engines. Rheinmetall Automotive recognized the signs of the times early and endowed a junior professorship at RWTH Aachen for research and development of mechatronic systems in combustion engines. This professorship also conducts research into virtual engine development and the development of hybrid drives.
