The IAW – Institut für Arbeitswissenschaft (Institute of Industrial Engineering and Ergonomics) – is pleased to announce that our students Arne Schön and Ben Kerkhoff have been awarded the Young Talent Award of the “Verein der Freunde und Ehemaligen des Instituts für Arbeitswissenschaft der RWTH Aachen University e.V.” (Association of Friends and Alumni of the Institute of Industrial Engineering and Ergonomics at RWTH Aachen University e.V.) for each of their outstanding Bachelor's and Master's thesis. The award ceremony was held by the 1st chairman of the association and IAW alumnus Dr. Christian Foltz.

In his work, Arne Schön conducted an empirical analysis of the (higher education) guidance and information situation of university dropouts with regard to the transitions between the higher education and university of applied sciences systems at DQR level 6. Ben Kerkhoff examined work interruptions in the context of digital work and undertook a comparison of the effects at different leadership levels.

We congratulate both prize winners and wish them all the best for the future!
