Starting something new is always difficult. This is particularly true for engineers who are trying to get a project off the ground. Often they have creative ideas, but not the necessary equipment or funding. This is why the Swiss drive specialist maxon motor has launched its Young Engineers Program (YEP), which supports innovative projects that use electric drive systems.
Participants in the program have access to numerous benefits, including: receiving DC motors, gearheads, and controllers from maxon at reduced prices or even free of charge. Additionally, maxon's experts support them with technical know-how; and last but not least, the team projects are presented to a wider audience via maxon's various communication channels (website, social media, and driven the maxon motor magazine).
Anyone who is interested in the Young Engineers Program can find all of the information on the drive.tech website, simply fill out the online form to apply for a place on the YEP. A group of experts from maxon motor will evaluate all the project details provided and decide whether the project will receive support and in what form. On drive.tech, engineers can also find out about other YEP projects. The website includes case studies that describe different applications for maxon products and blogs written by maxon experts about drive technology and the latest trends in the field.
Not only engineers and technicians can take part in the YEP. Event organizers can also apply to maxon using the online form. Those who are accepted into the program will also benefit from their event being promoted on the maxon communication channels.
