VWI-portal through extensive member area completed. Everything worth knowing about the industrial engineering is now gathered on the Web site of the Association of German industrial engineers. What is industrial engineer in English? Can I study this interdisciplinary subject at which University? The starting salaries are paid for graduates? These and many more questions are answered on the Web pages (www.vwi.org) and the publications of the Association. Just for high school graduates the VWI portal so if not provides a most valuable, the most valuable information source on the Internet. Arrived barely in the study, the VWI groups offer optimal orientation and give everything in the study. These include social skills, organizational ability, presentation techniques, and many more important soft skills. The fun of it and the feeling of the group represent another important pillar of active work.
For members, the new members area on the VWI is now opened Web page (www.vwi.org). We make the Members there a number of useful functions, which complement the range of services of the VWI. New or improved features include the extended search options in the electronic membership directory, convenient maintaining of your data and managing group memberships in the Association (working groups, student groups, Alumnigruppen). In addition, you can see current presentations, logs, and reports of the Association. For groups we have collected important documents and forms, which significantly simplify the daily active work.
This includes, for example, guidance on finances, bylaws, and to the corporate design of the VWI including logo templates. A major goal of our Association is to promote the exchange of experience and knowledge between the members. All kinds of events, in which members meet physically together are the ideal place to do it. Since this meeting, inter alia due to large distances are not always possible, we have a forum on the Web page set up, in which all members discussion and share general ideas congratulations are invited. Special registration is not necessary for the Forum. The user profiles are already designed for VWI members and must be personalized only with a photo and a signature. Easier and better does not. Access for guests will follow soon. Where can ask questions then to the study and profession, which are answered by industrial engineers from the practice or higher students. (Ingo Schmidt)
