Junior textile engineers awarded prizes by Reiners Foundation

Jan '09
On the occasion of the second Aachen-Dresden International Textile Conference, which took place in Dresden short before the turn of the year, the Walter Reiners Foundation of the German textile machinery industry has honoured three successful junior engineers.

This time the prizes endowed with 10,000 Euro altogether have been awarded to Dr. Uwe Köckritz, TU Dresden, Mr. Fabian Schreiber, RWTH Aachen and Ms. Cornelia Kowtsch, TU Dresden.

"Materials of the future, such as steel and aluminium have been the materials of the 19th and 20th centuries, fibre composites will be the central materials of the 21st century. The manufacture of these future materials starts from textile machines", outlined the foundation's President Peter D. Dornier, Chairman of the Board of Lindauer Dornier GmbH in his celebratory speech.

“The increasing demand for light weight components made of carbon fibre used for aircraft construction or in building construction and civil engineering are best examples for a new textile reality, which comprises much more than garments and home textiles”, summarised Dornier.

Research of today-
The new generation of engineers already responds to this new textile reality with its research projects.
The thesis of Dr. Uwe Köckritz, honoured with the promotion prize for the best dissertation, dealt with fibre reinforcement of concrete.

Fabian Schreiber received the promotion prize for the best diploma thesis. His subject was braiding technology. Cornelia Kowtsch – who received the creativity award for the best seminar paper – developed a concept for three-dimensional structures of fibre composites – the materials of the 21st century.
