Young Talent Award 2020

ESCRYPT honors university graduates with Young Talent Award

For the second time, ESCRYPT has awarded Bachelor graduates from the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (RUB) with the Young Talent Award. At the academic celebration of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, ESCRYPT Managing Director Dr. Thomas Wollinger awarded 20 students who stood out for their outstanding performance concentrated on IT security.

On his speech, Thomas Wollinger emphasized the great importance of IT security for the digital world nowadays and praised the contribution that RUB makes with its courses in this area for the students and the region: “Cars, for example, that drive on the streets as rolling computers connected to the Internet, need special protection against manipulation and unauthorized access. The fact that Bochum is training and gathering some of the best experts in this area makes us proud and happy.”

In fact, ESCRYPT itself was founded in 2003 as a start-up at the Horst Görtz Institute for IT security at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. Today the company is part of the Bosch Group and, with around 400 employees worldwide, is the leading provider of IT security in the automotive sector. “The Young Talent Award stands for the still unbreakable connection between us and our academic roots,” emphasized Thomas Wollinger at the award ceremony.

By offering internships, innovative Bachelor and Master Thesis topics, as well as attractive jobs for graduates, for example, as IT security consultant, developer or tester, ESCRYPT actively helps the transition from college to work. In doing so, the company wants to contribute to practical training and at the same time inspire young and qualified specialists to work at ESCRYPT. Regardless of that, the ESCRYPT Young Talent Award recognizes once a year the exceptional performance of ambitious Bachelor graduates in IT security.
