Double commitment of the Schnitzer Group at the DHBW CAS

Experience from his day-to-day business

Maximilian Köppel, project engineer at the Schnitzer Group at the Kornwestheim location, completed two appointments at the same time at the Baden-Wuerttemberg Cooperative State University (DHBW). The objectives were different in each case.


At the end of March, an important information event for the “Dual Master” took place at the DHBW Stuttgart in front of about 50 company representatives from the metropolitan region of the same name.  At the beginning of April, the “Master Kick-Off Event” for more than 100 students took place at the DHBW Center for Advanced Studies (CAS) at the education campus in Heilbronn for the summer semester 2019.


At both events, the dedicated “Systemic Projectmanager” was available as a student contact point for a wide range of questions. A special university commitment that was gladly accepted by the students and that fits in with the spirit of the Schnitzer Group – because in addition to the lived swarm intelligence, the passing on of expert knowledge is very much in line with corporate culture. “Which tasks await me after the Dual Master?” was one of the most frequently asked questions of many students. Here Maximilian Köppel was able to give exciting insights into the complex range of tasks involved in automotive development projects and international supplier management in numerous one-on-one discussions. Quite simply: experience from his day-to-day business. The Schnitzer Group wishes all students at DHBW CAS every success and a good start to their Master’s studies!


Maximilian Köppel is a successful graduate of the bachelor course “Technical Management (Mechanical Engineering)” of the DHBW Ravensburg. Building on this, he completed the career-integrated master’s degree in industrial engineering at DHBW CAS. He has been with the Schnitzer Group for 4 years and is, among other things, the company supervisor of the master students.
