Technical product designer

Technical product designer training

Do you have good spatial perception? Do you enjoy drawing – with precision and attention to detail? Are you fascinated by technology? Then this training program is the right path for you.

This is what a typical training day looks like

Technical product designers learn about 3D modeling using computers

This helps you to understand what you will subsequently design as a technical product designer and how it works and you learn the fundamentals of metalworking in practice. We also give you an insight into the fields of pneumatics and control technology. All of this takes place while you complete your fundamental drawing and design training. The assignment of small, independent projects let you develop graphics and documentation as well as detailed designs. Incidentally, drawings are no longer two-dimensional, but are created from three-dimensional models using CAD systems. So we also impart comprehensive knowledge about 3D computer modeling.

The practical part of your 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.
