Apprenticeship trades

Apprenticeship as industrial technician

If you have a technical aptitude and an interest in machines, then this is the perfect place for you. In the industrial technician apprenticeship, you’ll learn the fundamental skills of metalworking, soldering, welding, milling, turning and drilling. Then from the small, you transfer to the large: Installing and commissioning complex machines and large systems will be no problem for you at the end of your apprenticeship. And you’ll be able to work so precisely that your manufacturing tolerances will be measured in thousandths of a millimetre.

Apprenticeship as electronics technicians for automation technology

Everything begins with a solid grounding in basic mechanical and electronic principles. This is followed by control engineering, electrical and mechanical final assembly, commissioning and technical documentation. Ultimately, you’ll become a professional in assembling and testing measurement, control and regulation equipment. Handing over the finished system and instructing the future users round off your skill set perfectly.

Apprenticeship as product designer

Once you have a good command of the mechanical principles, you’ll learn 2D and 3D product design at the computer. The implementation of design and customer specifications are just as much a part of your remit as the consideration of economic and quality aspects. You design and construct components, assemblies or entire systems precisely and create assembly plans and bills of material for production. So your idea ultimately evolves into a perfect product.
