Dual programme in mechanical engineering

In partnership with Bochum University of Applied Sciences (Velbert/Heiligenhaus campus) or at Wuppertal University and the Industry Vocational Training Centre (BZI) in Remscheid, we offer the dual programme in mechanical engineering. The contents of the course and the vocational part in the company are perfectly coordinated. You are in the company's employ throughout your training and study period. Allowing you to put theory into (effective) practice.

Training period

The dual programme lasts 4 or 4 1/2 years. Once you pass, you will not only have attained a Bachelor's degree, you will also have a vocational qualification in a metal-processing trade (e.g. industrial technician or toolmaker). At the end of the fourth semester, you will sit the final examination at the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) examination. Thus you will obtain your first vocational qualification. The last four semesters are devoted to your studies.

You will already have the following in your portfolio

Besides manual skills and good powers of spatial imagination, you should be above-average in your commitment and open-mindedness. You are communicative, flexible, team-orientated and reliable. A basic understanding of business rounds off your profile. You will also have left school with good 'A' levels. In particular, you have good marks in the technical and scientific subjects, as well as a sound knowledge of English and IT.

And after the Bachelor's degree

This qualification creates a host of opportunities in an international environment. It is naturally in our interest to offer attractive professional prospects within our company. Further courses with a Master’s examination can also be taken at various technical colleges and universities.

When and how can you apply? 

An application send to us between eight to twelve months in advance of the dual programme will stand a good chance. We look forward to receiving your informative application - preferably directly via our online form or by email to Klauke-Bewerbung@Emerson.com.
