Enable complex industry projects and new technologies
Engineers play a key role in successful underwriting and claims management
Customised claims management
When it comes to assessing potential risks for major projects, there is no way around our engineers at Munich Re. What makes them so special? They all have at least five years of professional practical experience and can provide significant added value for us as well as for our clients through their technical expertise and risk awareness. In this spirit, it may happen that a Munich Re team of engineers supports the construction of a bridge.
Munich Re employs engineers from a wide range of disciplines. With their technical know-how, they identify and assess existing and potential risks in highly complex construction and technology projects all over the world.
Risk management needs practical experience, openness & analytical thinking
Technical know-how & risk awareness

Munich Re's Engineering Pool
For experienced engineers new to the insurance business, Munich Re has created a 2-year induction programme, the Engineering Pool. This is where participants add insurance qualifications – as either underwriters or claims managers – to their skills portfolio and gain intimate knowledge of the Munich Re departments they will collaborate with in the future.
What risks are involved in a construction or technology project? How likely are these risks to occur? Moreover, how much will it cost when they do?
Munich Re builds on the transferable skills and knowledge of experienced engineers to answer these – and related – questions. To enable engineers to identify and assess risks and damages, Munich Re has created a two-year induction programme that builds on pre-existing engineering knowledge and experience: the Munich Re Engineering Pool.
Its hands-on approach helps engineers familiarise themselves with all aspects of insurance and reinsurance. Mentors support participants in navigating their new career path. The programme is challenging: participating engineers take on full responsibility from day one, handling million-euro projects while completing workshops and seminars.
© Munich ReAs an engineering underwriter with Munich Re, you see new projects and technologies on a daily basis. Keeping a balance between an in-depth evaluation and providing the client with a fast response is the big challenge here. The time in the engineering pool prepared me for what our clients really expect from us: tailor-made insurance solutions for complex risks.
