Pentair participates in ‘The week of process engineering’, an annual event in the Netherlands which takes place in February. High school students get the opportunity to look around in a factory, a laboratory, or a company involved in process engineering. Fewer and fewer students in the Netherlands seem to be interested in technical subjects, or in Process Engineering as a career. Trade and industry is trying to turn the tide by organizing the annual week. Various technical companies open their doors and show what they are doing, in an effort to get more students interested.
Two groups of students visited Pentair Enschede. They first listened to a short presentation in which two of our Engineering Scientists, Henry Hamberg and Sandra Kiel told them about the purpose, development, and production of membranes. They also heard about the career opportunities at Pentair for those who study Process Engineering. These opportunities include office and sales jobs, as well as hands-on jobs in the construction of membrane installations and services in the field.
After the presentation, the students went on a guided tour around the factory to see the assembly activities and membrane production. Pentair showed the students how much fun it is to work on technical innovation, and how they can participate in the creation of products, systems, and services that are used around the world every day.
