Trainings trainings conducted at the IBM lab in Böblingen or at the IBM research centre in Rüschlikon, Switzerland complement these on-site workshops, allowing for an intense exchange with the mainframe manufacturer.
Students also do appreciate visits to the IBM Museum where historical computers and devices like the punched-card reader or the chain printer are being shown in operating mode.
