In the past semester, students from various universities of applied sciences once again took the opportunity to prove their knowledge and skills during practical projects at SKIDATA. At this international leader in access management and solutions, numerous departments such as hardware development and software development took part in these projects with students.
SKIDATA also profits from the results of this cooperation and gets to know many promising potential employees.

Students of the Salzburg University of Applied Sciences develop waste management concepts for more sustainability

In contrast to many other projects at colleges and universities of applied sciences, practical projects at SKIDATA are relevant for much longer than just a semester. Oftentimes the students” work is so good that methods or entire concepts can be directly put into practice. For example, logistics students developed a waste management concept for SKIDATA which is gradually being implemented. With this, the company headquartered in Grödig near Salzburg, Austria also takes the demand for sustainability into account.

Cross-border cooperation: the Rosenheim University of Applied Sciences assists with choosing parking barrier boom material
