I am writing this in English because a lot of students at RWTH Aachen are international and might be thinking about going to this company. DON'T. I went to FEG Textiltechnik for an internship during my engineering degree and was only used as free labour in their production facilities. I learned NOTHING about engineering and was not involved in any projects. I earned 200€ a month for doing the exact same job that full-time workers did who earned that amount in 3 days (the implants I manufactured were packaged and sold just like the rest). Since it is a full-time job, I could not do other work and thus had a net loss of money even though I was slaving away in their cleanroom all day. They had no qualms about letting a random student without any experience or medical check-up produce their products (medical implants). They also had no qualms about letting me work without any personal safety equipment while I had to clean the lab every day with various chemicals that made me feel dizzy and sick. I didn't even get a reference letter when I asked for it even though I always did my work dutifully and was polite and on time every day. The manager just said: 'Why even bother? You're just an intern, I don't care about you.' The job culture and happiness of the workers in this company is just abysmal. Not surprising, with management like this. Now that i am a fully graduated medical engineer in research, I will make sure to never associate or cooperate with this company and warn my students about them. I'll also make sure to ask my doctor to not use their implants if I ever need them, after having seen under which conditions they are made. I've done 6 different jobs and internships related to engineering during my degrees and this has easily been the worst by far. I am writing this review 3 years after my internship because I am still sometimes thinking about how terrible this company is and how happy I am to never go back. Don't make the same mistake I did and don't go there in the first place.
