MDESIGN congratulates the winners of EN2021

Award ceremony of the Engineering Newcomer at the "Motek"

Winner of this year's Engineering Newcomer | MDESIGN

The winners of the Engineering Newcomer 2021 have been determined. On October 5, at the norelem booth at the "Motek" trade fair, the norelem ACADEMY, together with the sponsors MDESIGN, CADENAS, TENADO, Zuken E3 and the Bundesarbeitskreis Fachschule für Technik, selected the best design projects of the young talent competition.

The award ceremony was held by Martin Ahner (Head of norelem ACADEMY), who presented the three winning teams from a total of 35 participating teams - including teams from Germany, Croatia, Italy, Macedonia, Turkey, Sweden, Great Britain, Canada, South Africa and Nigeria - with their trophies and cash prizes.

Since 2014, high school and university students have been able to participate in the Engineering Newcomer to compete with others with their project or final work in the field of engineering and development. The practically experienced jury, in which MDESIGN also regularly sits, evaluates the best projects submitted, which are rewarded with an attractive cash prize for the students and their educational institution.

This year's first place went to Christian Rieger from the Technikerschule München with his high-temperature 3D printer. He particularly impressed the jury with the lightweight and compact mechanics of his solution.

An automated pellet smoker made it to second place. The SmokeMatik team (Jonas Zirlik, Michael Pröll, Patrick Körber, Thomas Hahn, Christian Roder) from the Rudolf-Diesel-Fachschule in Nuremberg developed an octagonal smoker including a touchscreen.

Third place went to Alexander Berkmann, Wilhelm Menke and Ilona Pollari from the Technikerschule München. They developed an insertion device with a focus on ergonomics and handling.

We would like to congratulate all three winning teams on their placements and thank all the participating students who submitted such diverse and interesting projects this year!
