Women and technology – is that possible?

My job – industrial mechanic

„I am an industrial mechanic and am currently working at WP Kemper in the assembly. I became aware of this technical job through an internship that I did at WP Kemper.

The practical work in the assembly and to see the result of the work inspire me. The machines for dough production are very diverse and with its many individual parts and various functions very interesting. Working together in a team is particularly fun.

The fact that I mainly work with men does not bother me – quite the contrary, it is pleasant! The assembly of individual components are very interesting and I always learn something new. I am also fascinated by the production of components. It is exciting to see what comes from one piece of steel and what it is used for.

The best thing about my job is that you see what you have achieved, after a short time. The test and setting of the machine during the roll and bread production, is, again and again, a real highlight. By experience I can say that the job industrial mechanic is not only suitable for men, but also for women.“

Klar geht das! - Bericht einer Schülerin

"Ich bin über das Projekt MINTRelation auf technische Berufe aufmerksam geworden. Dabei habe ich mich aus eigenem Interesse bei WP Kernper einteilen lassen. Bei WP Kernper habe ich viele neue Erfahrungen in Bezug auf technische Berufe gesammelt.  Besonders spannend empfand ich die Abläufe, die für die Herstellung eines Stiftehalters erforderlich waren.

Dabei haben wir anhand technischer Zeichnungen die Grundplatte und die anderen Bauteile des Stiftehalters gefertigt. Dafür mussten wir folgende Arbeitsschritte durchführen:

  • Scharfe Kanten der Bauteile entgraten
  • Bohrungen anreißen
  • Zusammenschrauben der einzelnen Bauteile

Mir hat der Tag bei WP Kernper sehr gut gefallen und gezeigt, dass technische Berufe auch etwas für Mädchen sind!"
