New lecturers at the German Milling School Braunschweig

14. September 2021



New lecturers strengthen the pedagogical team at the Deutsche Müllerschule Braunschweig (DMSB) and accompany the implementation of the new framework guidelines for the two-year technical colleges. These focus more on modular learning and standardised degrees.

At the beginning of the current semester, several new lecturers are taking up their work at the DMSB. The reinforcement of the pedagogical team comes at an ideal time: at the end of the current academic year, teaching will take place entirely according to the new framework guidelines for two-year technical colleges, which focus on modular, project-oriented learning.

Georg Böttcher, educational director of the DMSB, is doubly pleased about the expansion of the team: "Our new lecturers enable a reset in terms of content due to their extensive wealth of experience from current practice. They will be available to the DMSB for several years and thus ensure continuity in the new curriculum."

The new lecturers: Rich treasure of practical experience
Peter Klenner joined the DMSB from the Technical Competence Centre in Braunschweig, the Heinrich Buessing School. With many years of professional experience in plant planning in the automotive industry, he brings with him the best prerequisites for teaching the complex processes of mill and compound feed technology. He is looking forward to the new perspectives: "I find the change of sides from business to teaching very exciting."

The DMSB has also been able to attract additional guest lecturers in process technology. Jan Gausepohl brings his many years of experience in milling to the table: he was plant manager at the Wehrhahn and GoodMills Group for 20 years and managed numerous projects abroad at locations in Europe, Africa and South America. Most recently, he played a major role in the construction of the Bauck mill. With his teaching position at the DMSB, he is returning to his roots: "As a DMSB graduate of 1985, it is a nice task for me to impart my experience to the students."

Further reinforcement comes from the industry: "We are pleased about the excellent technical and pedagogical support from the Braunschweig-based technology team of "Reiseobermüller" from the Bühler company, which virtually brings the pulse of the mills to the DMSB," Georg Böttcher explains further.

New framework guidelines: Modular system and bachelor's degree
With the new framework guidelines for the two-year technical colleges, the DMSB has introduced the project-oriented, modular system of vocational learning areas, which is recognised in all federal states. In the future, the final certificate will also award the title of "Bachelor Professional" in technology in addition to the advanced technical college entrance qualification, thus already opening up access to higher education studies in several of the German federal states.
