Fireside chat

Our fireside chats enable casual discussions with experts on relevant topics exclusively for members.

Company excursion

The association organizes excursions to our company partners at regular intervals in order to give students of polymer engineering an insight into their future professional life.

Company workshop

In our workshops, students work with our partners on practical case studies to gain an in-depth understanding of future work tasks.

Company presentation

Here our partners present themselves from their best side and introduce their products and working possibilities to our members. These events are traditionally accompanied by engineers and human resources staff with whom you can get in touch during a casual evening event.


The association enables members to participate in the world’s largest plastics trade fair, which is held every three years. The offer includes travel, accommodation and tickets.

By the way, our events are mostly accompanied by free drinks and food.
