Aretè & Cocchi Technology (A&CT)
About 50 students from the University of Ferrara attended presentations and toured A&CT’s factory
Aretè & Cocchi Technology welcomed about 50 engineering students to its company headquarters last week for a workshop on corporate management, strategy and innovation.
The students, who are pursuing Masters degrees in engineering at the University of Ferrara, attended applied lectures on strategic planning, budget and reporting, research and development, and human resources management.
Representatives of two A&CT business units — OCEM Airfield Technology and OCEM Power Electronics — presented the lectures as a sort of live case study. The students had an opportunity to tour the company HQ and factory to learn about product development and quality control.
They also got to meet with both experienced researchers and junior engineers from the two business units. A&CT believes that young people drive innovation, and is committed to their development as part of its corporate culture.
During the factory tour the students were able to inspect OCEM Power’s latest advanced power system: a current-controlled power converter for the TRIUMF cyclotron magnet in Vancouver, Canada. TRIUMF is Canada’s national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics, and is owned and operated by a consortium of 19 universities.
The students also observed demonstrations at OCEM Airfield Technology’s photometric testing facility and visited its electronics research lab.
A&CT was thrilled to share its values, insights and expertise with the students. The group is passionate about helping develop the next generation of power and airfield electronics engineers, as they prepare to graduate and help tackle some of the biggest questions facing scientific research and industrial technology.
