„Window to Construction”. A student competition in Drutex
On 6 May, in our company headquarters, took place 2nd Student Conference ‘Window to Construction’. 11 teams competed, representing the Silesian University of Technology, the University of Science and Technology in Cracow, the Szczecin University of Technology, the Koszalin University of Technology and the Gdansk University of Technology.
In the qualifying round each four-person team conducted a thematic lecture that they had prepared. After the lecture, academics from specific universities and representatives of our company in the jury asked questions. The presented material was evaluated, and four most interesting presentations ensured qualification to the second stage, that is an Oxford debate and a fight for the best team title in the 2nd Student Conference ‘Window to Construction’.
During the break in the debate, students visited Drutex, i.a. the research laboratory, glass hardening shop, injection molding machines, the department of PVC profile extrusion, logistics department that manages the fleet of over 450 vehicles, as well as the most modern aluminum powder paint shop in Europe and one of very few in the world.
In the final the fierce fight was between the Silesia University of Technology and the Gdansk University of Technology. The Silesia University of Technology coped better with the question ‘Which windows to choose, with inward or outward opening?’, scoring maximum points.
- We are delighted with the huge interest, as well as the students’ knowledge. They could also learn form the inside about a globally-renowned company, equipped with cutting-edge technology. Drutex has been dynamically developing. Therefore, we constantly need experts in IT, construction, sales representatives, people with good command of foreign languages, as well as workers for production of windows, doors, roller shutters or façade blinds.
