OVE Young Engineers

Qualified electrical engineers are in great demand! The Austrian Electrotechnical Association (OVE) encourages young people to take up careers in this dynamic and many-sided area of electrical engineering and IT.

OVE Young Engineers is the students’ section of the Austrian Electrotechnical Association (OVE).

The mission of OVE includes:

  • Representation of students and their interests in the decision-making bodies of OVE 
  • Organisation of excursions, events and seminars
  • Networking at national and international levels and much more

As a student of electrical engineering I think it is important not just to get immersed in the things we are learning in lectures and courses, but also to widen our horizons a bit. In OVE Young Engineers, I am part of the whole professional network of all areas of electrical/electronic engineering and IT. On our excursions I get insights into companies and their activities and can make contacts that will be useful when I begin my professional career. But socialising with my fellow students is also very enjoyable.
