Xelvin joined Brainport International Community 16 February 2012
Xelvin recently joined networking organisation Brainport International Community.
Top technology region Brainport in the Southeast Netherlands is the ideal place for study, work, career building, self-development and a pleasant home. Brainport International Community (BIC) works to promote this worldwide and ensures new arrivals feel at home quickly and will want to stay. Attracting and keeping international talent is very important to Brainport, since the region needs 1,100 knowledge workers per year to meet (future) shortages of highly skilled technical workers.
Since Xelvin works with international knowledge workers, we want to strengthen Brainport Southeast Netherlands by jointly promoting the Southeast region worldwide.
You’ll find more information about networking company Brainport International Community on their website: http://www.brainportinternationalcommunity.com/en/
Xelvin sponsors student formula team 31 January 2012
Xelvin have just agreed to sponsor this year’s Formula student DIT team http://www.formuladit.com/. The formula DIT team is a group of 15 final year Manufacturing and Mechanical engineering students from the Dublin Institute of Technology http://www.dit.ie/ in Ireland.
The DIT team will compete in the annual formula student competition held at Silverstone every July http://www.formulastudent.com/default . The competition is the biggest educational motorsport event in Europe. It challenges university students to design and build a single seat racing car and compete with it in a series of static and dynamic events. The technology and performance of the cars is tested while each team has to demonstrate their understanding of the design and present their costs and business proposal. Teams are scored on their car’s performance, on the engineering behind the design and on their overall business proposal .
This is the second year a team from the Dublin Institute of technology www.dit.ie will enter the challenging class 1 competition. The competition offers students an invaluable opportunity to work as part of a team that mirrors real life engineering experiences. Already five of last year’s team have been recruited by Xelvin to work in the automotive industry in Holland. The DIT team are delighted to form a new partnership with Xelvin and it is hoped that Xelvin will be able to place many more DIT graduates in the future.
Follow the teams progress on http://www.facebook.com/formuladit and http://www.formuladit.com/
