The Director General Manager of ABC Compressors, Carlos Martin, presented an award of 600 euros to several students of Mechanical Engineering of Tecnun for the realization of a machine dedicated to the assembly of the parts of a ballpoint pen. The prototype, designed and assembled by 4th year students as part of the subject Pneumatics and Oleohydraulics course, was awarded the best grade by the jury.

The members of the jury have been two people in charge of the company ABC Compressors from Eibar. Its General Director , Carlos Martín; and the Technical Director , Demetrio San Adrián. The goal of this initiative is to encourage the participation of the company, dedicated to manufacture compressors for the food and petrochemical sectors, in subjects related to their professional activity. "We want to gain notoriety in the School because we need to hire engineers trained by Tecnun", said the General Director , Carlos Martin. 

"This practice is carried out in a professional context so that students learn how to meet different milestones to create a machine with pneumatic technology and have it work," explained Professor Gorka Sánchez. "The members of the jury not only evaluate the final result of the works, but also make the students go a little further, asking them: 'what if it fails?' And I thought it was very interesting that they had an impact on this aspect," said the professor.

The students use different programs from design in which they virtually create their project and the professors correct the different deliveries. They are distributed in teams of about 4 people and have only three months to develop the whole project.
