TU Braunschweig Wins SPITZKE Award for the Student Competition 2022

For the third time in a row, students from the TU in Braunschweig have won SPITZKE’s award for student competition 2022. This year, Johanna Huck, with her convincing project work across the board, received both the prize money and an award together with her university.

“On behalf of the entire SPITZKE Group, I would like to congratulate the winner on her inspiring work,” Christian Krippahl, HR Director at SPITZKE, said with a look toward this year’s award for the student competition at InnoTrans 2022. For us, it’s a matter of the heart to support the next generation of the industry and to inspire young people about the prospects in the railway industry. We are all excited about the numerous students who took up the challenge of our student competition this year.”

BIM-Project in Railway Infrastructure Construction

The task which had to be solved was difficult. The participants were asked to create a concept for the implementation of BIM projects (Building Information Modeling) in railway infrastructure construction projects based on a track extension at SPITZKE’s headquarters in Großbeeren. This ranged from presenting the challenges, advantages and disadvantages of BIM, to the digital measurements and modeling of the track systems, to an analysis of the requirements BIM places on a project.

The winners’ performance and all other participating students, who all submitted excellent project work, is all the more impressive.

We would therefore also like to thank Lea Szuban, Max Engler, Max Ernst, Moritz Boese and Noah Hoepfner from the Technical University in Mittelhessen; Dennis Kannegießer and Claudia Gierschner from FH Potsdam; Helmuth Feide and Jakob Georgi also from the Technical University in Mittelhessen; Marvin Schulz and Tabea Löprik from the Brandenburg Technical University as well as Lucas Spitzer, Niklas Enke and Paul Göritz from FH Potsdam for their inspiring concepts.

The SPITZKE Student Competition is endowed with 10,000 euros for the winner and the university. It’s aimed at students in the fields of civil engineering, mechanical engineering or mechatronics.
