SynCat Social Skills Workshop, Oct 26 - 27, 2023
SynCat students took part in a two-day social skills workshop in which they learnt helpful tips and tricks for creating interesting and confident presentations.
Rhetoric and communication expert Karolina Höcker worked with the students, for example, on how to appear confident during a presentation, how to make a presentation interesting and how body language works and can be consciously controlled. These aspects were not only dealt with in theory but also applied directly in short presentations in small groups. Here, the students received personal and direct feedback - also from the expert herself.
SynCat Social Skills Workshop, Dec 1 - 2, 2022
The annual SynCat workshop took place in Berchtesgaden on 1 and 2 December 1 and 2, 2022. The students first visited the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine, the oldest active salt mine in Germany, during an exciting guided tour before the social skills workshop with external trainer Fabian Drasdo began.
One aim of the workshop was for the students to grow together as a team and learn more about their team behaviour. First coaching skills and other leadership communication techniques were also developed. The students then rounded off the evening at the Berchtesgaden Advent Market.
The next day, the workshop went into its second round. The topics covered were deepened during discussions in small groups and practical team-building exercises.
SynCat Excursion, Jan 23 - 24, 2020
This year's industrial excursion took the students of the SynCat degree program to Burghausen in Bavaria's Silicon Valley.
The students gained an insight into the real world of research outside the university labs and enjoyed learning about the theories behind beer brewing and silicone baking moulds.
The first part of the excursion took the students to the private brewery Müllerbräu in Neuötting. It was a great opportunity to learn about the production process behind Germany's favourite drink.
The following day, the students visited Wacker, one of the largest (chemical) companies in Germany. The students were fascinated by the size of the company and, above all, the variety of products that are manufactured there or used by other companies to produce their end products.
