Curious about insider info?

How do you become a mechatronics engineer? Is that fun? And what are the advantages and disadvantages of the profession? The team at the Osterrath secondary school in Rheda-Wiedenbrück investigated these questions. In the film club, they learned how to produce their own videos: From editing, to the camera, to the cut. They accompanied Hendrik Bauch for a day and got to the bottom of things. Hendrik's instructors also have a lot to say about the profession.
