TectoYou is regarded by Siemens as an important platform where students can attain an understanding about industrial technologies and the career opportunities associated with them. According to Gunter Erb, Head of Human Resources for the Siemens Industry Sector, "the shortage of upcoming talent in Germany is a burning issue. This makes it all the more important for us to fascinate the youth with technology and demonstrate them the prospective career opportunities available in this field. Through the Hanover Fair the students can open themselves up to the exciting world of Siemens technology present in industry. Particularly by addressing issues such as energy efficiency, we aim to establish the relevance of technology in our everyday lives and the need to cultivate a creative young generation for such professions."
