Electronics engineer (f/m/x) for automation engineering technology.

Tinkering is more than a hobby for you and technology is your passion? Then you are exactly right with us. Your day-to-day work could hardly be more exciting, because you are not only on the whole factory premises, but at the same time always close to people. The analysis of functional relationships and process flows of automated systems are just as much a part of your field of activity as the installation and adjustment of electrical or hydraulic drive systems.

"We learn everything about pneumatics (air pressure) and hydraulics (fluids). On our training trolleys we can build circuits in a practical way and operate them via a PC or mobile phone. This prepares us in the best possible way for our later fields of work."
