Why did I apply for a place on the BUTTING scholarship programme?
Even as a student on the integrated programme, I was able to gain an initial insight into the BUTTING scholarship programme at the six-monthly student network meetings. Since I wanted to do a Master's degree after my Bachelor's, I was happy that BUTTING offered me this opportunity. After the informational interview, I was determined to take advantage of this opportunity and so I applied for a place on the scholarship programme.

I can recommend the BUTTING scholarship programme because ...
... it gives me the chance to maintain close contact with the company through my professional mentor at BUTTING, while at the same time enjoying the freedoms of a full-time student thanks to the financial support. The opportunity to work as a student trainee during the semester breaks means I can put theory into practice.

The best thing about the BUTTING scholarship programme is ..
... definitely the network meetings. The scholarship holders gain new insights into the latest topics and issues at BUTTING as well as seminars on interdisciplinary skills. They're also a great way to make contacts and exchange ideas with others.

Why did I apply for a place on the BUTTING scholarship programme?
Even before I started my training at BUTTING as a materials inspector, I knew that I wanted to study afterwards. As I always felt at home at BUTTING, I really wanted to keep in touch with my previous colleagues and the company while studying. Thanks to the BUTTING scholarship programme, I was able to do this.

I can recommend the BUTTING scholarship programme because ...
... it allows me to focus fully on my studies without having to constantly worry about my finances. I particularly like the opportunity to work as a student trainee at BUTTING during the semester breaks so that I'm not completely out of touch with the working world. It's also important that scholarship holders have access to skilled mentors at BUTTING who are always there to help.

The best thing about the BUTTING scholarship programme is ...
... for sure, that contact with colleagues is maintained and further strengthened at the regular network meetings with other scholarship holders.

How did I find out about the BUTTING scholarship programme?
My goal was to go to university after completing my training. As a result, I learned of the BUTTING scholarship programme even before my training. During my apprenticeship as a materials tester I thought more intensively about the scholarship programme. After a positive and informative discussion, I did not find it difficult to make the decision to apply for the scholarship programme.

I can recommend the BUTTING scholarship programme because ...
... it preserves the contact with BUTTING. If I have any questions, I can ask my subject mentor for advice. I also have the opportunity to do placements or internships during my semester breaks. Thanks to the financial support, I can fully focus on my studies.

The best thing about the BUTTING scholarship programme is ...
... the regular network meetings where you can exchange ideas with other scholarship holders. There are also talks on current topics from different areas of BUTTING. Furthermore, workshops are held at network meetings to improve interdisciplinary skills. Of course, the financial support helps in everyday student life too.

How did I find out about the BUTTING study support programme?
Already in the team week, at the beginning of my training as an industrial clerk at BUTTING, I became aware of the study support programme. Since I've always wanted to study, I was very happy that BUTTING supported me in this way. After a briefing with the study support staff I decided to apply for a place on the study support programme.

I can recommend the BUTTING study support programme because ...
... you never lose contact with the company. Thanks to study counselling and a personal mentor, I always have contacts who support me during my studies. In addition, BUTTING offers the opportunity to work as a student trainee during the semester holidays or to do internships.

The best thing about the BUTTING study support programme is ...
... definitely the network meetings! In these, the students can exchange ideas and share experiences. There are also talks on current topics at BUTTING and workshops that promote interdisciplinary skills.

How did I find out about the BUTTING study support programme?
After getting my Abitur qualification, it had always been my aim with training to create a solid foundation on which I can build through study. During my training at BUTTING, there were a number of occasions, such as Team Week or on the BUTTING website, when I heard about the scholarship programme and found out more about it. After an initial informational interview, I quickly realised that I would like to apply.

I can recommend the BUTTING study support programme because ...
... it provides great support for my studies, in addition to financial help. Close contact with BUTTING through my mentor gives me the opportunity to work during the holidays to gain plenty of insights and to start networking on site.

The best thing about the BUTTING study support programme is ...
... network meetings where you can find out new things about BUTTING and a range of interdisciplinary topics. Programme participants also exchange lots of ideas and learn from one another.

After my studies, I am now employed at H. Butting GmbH & Co KG in the ...
... "Line pipes & clad pipes" sales department.

My tasks are ...
... largely, the preparation of detailed technical and commercial offers, which we develop for the tendered projects of our customers (oil companies and EPCI companies). Internal communication with interfaces of all kinds plays an important role here, as does communication with customers before, during and after tender preparation.

I can apply/contribute the following contents/focus areas of my studies in my area of work ...
In general, I can say that content is found in almost every area of ​​study in everyday working life. The most important content comes from the following lectures: Project Management/Technical Sales and Sales Strategies/Materials Science/ Technology/English & Intercultural Competence.

I can recommend the BUTTING study support programme because ...
... closeness to the company during my studies is important to me. The fact that in the best case there can be a constant switch between professional activity and studies, means that you never lose the connection to the company and the world of work and collect additional professional experiences parallel to your studies.
Furthermore, you can concentrate fully on your studies during the semester, as you can always work in the company during semester breaks. Since this activity can vary, the individual's wealth of experience is at the same time broader, as certain processes can be viewed and understood from a different point of view.
In addition, it was very important to me personally to be able to secure independent financial support during my studies, which was also provided by the financial support and the various deployments at BUTTING.
