Festo Didactic provides support for equipping universities in Syria

Laboratories in Aleppo and Damascus are refurbished with state-of-the-art technology

In cooperation with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), Festo Didactic, the education division of Festo SE, is striving to improve vocational and technical training in Syrian industry. This is intended to restore sustainable livelihoods in the crisis regions and accelerate their further development.

New laboratories for the professionals of tomorrow

Together with UNIDO, Festo Didactic is setting up new laboratories for the Faculty of Industrial Engineering at the Universities of Damascus and Aleppo. The rooms will be transformed into a modern learning environment through learning solutions and e-learning offerings on technology topics such as pneumatics, hydraulics, electropneumatics and PLC systems. "The key to Syria's reconstruction is skilled professionals. That is why we, as an educational supplier, have a great interest in providing support for technical education and training," says Enrico Rühle, Member of the Management Board, Festo Didactic.
