Plastic Engineering Day: Materials, career and award show

On October the 24th it is time for the event of the year for engineering students interested in plastics: Plastic Engineering Day. The event takes place at DTU and gives you talks from companies and a mini-career fair. We will also find the winners of our talent competition PROJECT PLASTIC.

Are you an engineering student? Are interested in the possibilities that plastic materials give you – and curious about your career opportunities in the plastics industry?

Then Plastic Engineering Day on October 24th at the Oticon Hall at DTU in Lyngby is the event for you!

The event, which we arrange in collaboration with DTU, offers exciting presentations from various Danish companies with examples of the difference plastic materials make in the Danish plastic industry, and about career opportunities in industry.

In addition to the presentations, we will also gather a wide selection of companies to a mini career fair.  Here you will have the possibility to talk with them about both career opportunities and the many possibilities of plastic materials.

The companies will be there all day and several of them will be present with a stand so you have the opportunity to seek out those you would like to talk to.

Find the event on Facebook.

We will find the winners of PROJECT PLASTIC

On Plastic Engineering Day we also find the winners of PROJECT PLASTIC – our talent competition for engineering students. The competition honors talented young people who, as part of their engineering studies, lead the way and show how we can use plastic materials to create innovative solutions.
