Yesterday afternoon, we had the pleasure of immersing ourselves in the fascinating world of space exploration at OHB System AG in Bremen, accompanied by several scholarship recipients from Hochschule Bremen.
The visit commenced with an informative corporate presentation, providing us with a comprehensive insight into OHB’s impressive history and innovation prowess. As one of Europe’s leading aerospace companies, OHB stands out not only for its technological excellence but also for its clear focus on groundbreaking projects.
The atmosphere was further enriched by captivating presentations on the Galileo project and the Lunar Gateway, allowing us to delve deeper into the pioneering technologies developed at OHB. Particularly inspiring was the discussion on career opportunities at OHB, catering to both students and experienced professionals. We were not only guided on how to apply for positions as students but also on how to actively contribute to the company’s exciting projects at an early stage.
A highlight of the visit was undoubtedly the behind-the-scenes tour of one of the cleanrooms, where the Meteosat Third Generation (MTG) is being constructed. The notion that this satellite will enable more accurate weather forecasts left a lasting impression on us. Observing the construction of a satellite in a cleanroom was a unique opportunity that highlighted the complexity and precision of this technological masterpiece.
Our sincere gratitude goes to OHB, especially to Jean Lorenz and Susanne Ergin, for this remarkable afternoon. Members of our association appreciate the chance to experience OHB’s visions and innovations firsthand. Special thanks also to our board member Jonathan Buchmann, who, as an intern at OHB, played a significant role in organizing this event.
