Mechatronics technician training
Are you good at working with your hands, do you think logically and understand technical connections? Are you fascinated by electromechanical processes? Then you are well-suited to the mechatronics technician training program.
This is what a typical training day looks like
Creative minds will feel right at home. The mechatronics technician training program teaches you how electronic, mechanical and pneumatic components work and interact. You assemble various assemblies and components and perform the relevant adjustments. You also learn how to startup, service and maintain machines. In short, your training is demanding and extremely diverse.
The practical part of your mechatronics technician basic training is predominantly held at our plant in Graben-Neudorf. Some parts of the technical training is also held in Bruchsal. At the same time, your practical training will be supplemented by theoretical knowledge at the vocational school.
