Where business dreams come true...
The FHNW organizers welcome you to the diary of the...
...Field Trip Local Edition 2022!
The Diary structure is such that for each company/university presentation there is an article, followed by its authors (i.e. students to whom the visit was assigned), and some photos taken during the talk. For each extra activities only photos are shown. Presentations are shown in chronological order from the first event to the most recent one.
Enjoy, and let yourself inspire...

South Africa is Africa's southernmost country with nearly 60 million people which is formally known as the Republic of South Africa (RSA). The country has a population of 1,221,037 people and is the world's 23rd largest country (471,445 square miles). Pretoria, judicial Bloemfontein, and legislative Cape Town are the three capital cities of South Africa. Johannesburg is the country's capital. Around 80% of South Africans are of Black African origin, and they are separated into ethnic groups that speak a variety of African languages. The remaining population is made up of the continent's largest populations of European (White South Africans), Asian (Indian and Chinese South Africans), and Multiracial (Colored South Africans) ancestry. According to the 2011 census, Zulu (22.7 percent) and Xhosa (21.7 percent) are the two most commonly spoken first languages (16.0 percent ). The following two are European in origin: English (9.6%) symbolizes the history of British colonialism and is extensively used in public and business life; Afrikaans (13.5%) is derived from Dutch and serves as the first language of most Coloured and White South Africans.
