Quality & Engineering Circle

Year-round online event

The Quality and Engineering Circle, offered for several years now, focuses on quality and engineering topics related to the product life cycle.

Last year, the event drew a substantial number of participants who virtually joined from diverse countries and various time zones. As of 2024, the format is becoming even more flexible, as we are extending the event period to the entire year. This will allow you to regularly catch up on the latest trends and developments in webinars held in German and English.

Our top-class speakers will provide you with valuable insights and practical tips, e.g. on the networking of Design and Process FMEA, Special Characteristics, Functional Safety, FMEA-MSR, Control Plan and much more.

You can find the German webinars here.


Stay up to date. We will regularly fill the following agenda with further webinar dates.
