Katharina Kratz, you came to Benninghoven directly after finishing secondary school and have recently been hired as a junior development engineer. Since when had you had those plans?
Katharina Kratz: I have always been involved in technology and engineering since I was little. In school, I completed work placements in the field of electronics and toolmaking. It was then – if not before – that I knew I wanted to go in that direction for my career. I was just unsure whether to choose an apprenticeship or a university course. I think that practical relevance is important, so the Benninghoven apprenticeship program was ideal for me.
