Insights into companies of the Region: The Excursion Weeks

In cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Wuppertal-Solingen-Remscheid, the University of Wuppertal offers students the opportunity to gain a very special insight into companies of the Bergisch region each year.

Students are taken by shuttle bus to interesting companies in the region and are given a look "behind the scenes". In this way, the students were given an exclusive first impression of the operational and process flows of the companies. Furthermore, this also allows the participants to establish first contacts into different industries and helps the students to build up their own career network.

Of course, the whole program is free of charge for all students.

A little tip:

If you are interested in a student job in the respective company, you are still looking for a topic for a thesis or you are looking for a direct entry job after graduation, you should prepare a CV. If there are any uncertainties regarding your CV, the university's Career Service will help you with all questions concerning your career.


During the Excursion Weeks in 2019, 180 students were given the opportunity to gain exclusive insights into six companies in the region. During presentations and guided tours of the companies, the participants were able to make contacts and find out about potential career opportunities.
