STUVA-YEP – Forum for Young Engineering Professionals

STUVA promotion of young talents

Why a young forum?

The entry into a constantly developing and internationally operating industry presents young engineers of all disciplines with great challenges. Particularly during the start of a career, it is often difficult to gain an overview of existing networks, associations and organisations as well as the state of the art. The STUVA-YEP - Forum for Young Engineering Professionals was established to facilitate and support this very entry.

By participating in regular events such as workshops and visits to construction sites, STUVA-YEP offers a platform for networking and the exchange of experience among young engineers on a professional and personal level. The most efficient tool for new developments is the exchange of ideas and views on short ways. It is our goal to jointly shape and help shape German tunnel construction in the coming decades.
