Technology is the basis for sustainable prosperity.

One of the WiCAM Foundation’s goals is to promote education. The focus here is on supporting universities. By awarding the Deutschlandstipendien (German Scholarships), we enable 45 young people to study at the most renowned universities in the country!

With the beginning of this year’s study semester, the WiCAM Foundation decided to award 15 scholarships in the field of mathematics and computer science. With this step, the WiCAM Foundation is the largest scholarship provider of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

After a short illness, founder Harald Wilkesmann passed away in 2017 – with his death, he decreed that part of the future income of WiCAM GmbH should flow into a charitable foundation to promote Germany as a software location in the field of research and development.

In 1986, founder Harald Wilkesmann founded WiCAM GmbH. In the beginning, he programmed machines from production companies and then wrote an independent CAM system that could control CNC machines from various manufacturers using data from different sources.
