The students from the UTC came to Austria expecting to work in the workshops at HTL Mödling, improve German and make new friends.
HTL Mödling Students wanted to improve communication and establish good relationships between HTL and UTC and to help this new system of education to get an idea of technical education. We expected to help the other students to improve their German and their technical skills.
The UTC students have learned better German skills though Conversation. Our workshop experience was interesting and we gained more in-depth knowledge about different machines such as the lathe and the CNC miller.
HTL students have accomplished their goal to teach the UTC students and got an idea about what our teachers have to do all day. We were also able to improve our English skills and meet some new friends. We hope they all enjoyed their visit and that it helped our schools for a better communication in the future.
