Insights into our apprenticeship at the BMW Group Plant Berlin.
Our apprenticeship building is located directly at the main gate in the BMW Group plant Berlin.
At the beginning of their apprenticeship, the technical apprentices learn how to process metal as well as various methods of metalworking in the so-called basic course room.
Apprentices in metal professions continue working on the conventional turning and milling machines as soon as they have mastered the manual processes.
The most demanding part is then the processing with computer-controlled CNC machines – four of which we have in the apprenticeship workshop, by the way.
In the grinding room, workpieces can be processed on different machines to an accuracy of 0.001mm.
Thermal joining, better known as welding, is also part of many job profiles. With us, welding can be learned virtually before it is put into practice.
How accurately the processing was carried out can be determined in the measuring room.
Many projects can be realised in our handicraft corner located next to the machine area.
Before operating the complex CNC machines, the theory for this is taught in our PC/CNC theory room.
Apprentices in electronics professions learn the basics in analogue, digital and PC technology in the e-laboratory.
In the PLC room, electronics and mechatronics specialists learn how to programme complex systems. By the way, PLC stands for programmable logic control.
Of course, dealing with robots is also part of most professions. We have also set up our very own trainings room for this.
Engine and control technology is taught in the machine laboratory.
The handling of controls controlling complex systems using air and oil is taught in the pneumatic room.
A lot of Industry 4.0 content can be conveyed in our “Smart Factory”. In addition to complex systems, this also includes new virtual worlds.
Whole worlds can already be made virtually presentable and walkable in the planning stage.
And even for coating, the entry for process mechanics for coating technology can be experienced virtually.
Our automotive mechatronics specialists can learn and realise the basics of automotive technology in the automotive laboratory.
In our small motorcycle workshop, engines and entire vehicles are broken down into every single part in order to get to know them thoroughly.
By now, additive manufacturing with 3D printing has become part of our learning material.
In the group room, the apprentices can exchange ideas during breaks and make use of the additional PC corner which complements the many computers in the training rooms.
