On the joys and perils of being an engineer: GEO editor-in-chief to give keynote address at Student Day

The goals of the more than 1,000 students from all over Europe who are expected to attend the STUDENT DAY hosted by embedded world at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg are to learn from industry experts and make contact with the biggest and most important companies from the embedded sector. For the ninth time in succession, the organisers will once again offer the students first-class industry information and a chance to broaden their horizons by inviting high-calibre keynote speakers to the event. In 2018 the address will be given by Dr Christoph Kucklick, editor-in-chief of GEO magazine, who will talk about the joys and perils of being an engineer.

“We are absolutely delighted that Dr Christoph Kucklick will give the keynote address at the embedded world Student Day,” says Professor Matthias Sturm, the instigator of the Student Day and chair of the embedded world advisory committee. “Dr Kucklick is not only very well known as the editor-in-chief of GEO magazine, but also as an author who takes a critical look at our society and the process of digitalisation. The best example of this is his book ‘Die granulare Gesellschaft. Wie das Digitale unsere Wirklichkeit auflöst’ (The Granular Society. How the Digital Transformation is Changing our Reality.) The university students can look forward to his talk on the joys and perils of being an engineer,” continues Sturm.
