Mechatronics engineer (m/f)
The perfect start to your professional life
As a mechatronics engineer you work across various disciplines such as mechanics, electrical engineering, electronics and information technology. You assemble functional units from mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, electrical, electronic and IT systems and components according to construction drawings and wiring diagrams. You manufacture individual components and assemble them into systems and facilities. You put systems into operation, programme them or install the relevant software. This also includes the maintenance, service and troubleshooting of complex mechatronics components of our crushing and screening plants.
- Start: September of every year
- Duration of training: 3.5 years
- Prerequisite: good high school diploma/certificate
- Later deployment location: in workshops, customer service with the customer on site
Your three and a half year training is made up of vocational school and on-the-job training. You move through various departments in our company.
- Training workshop: basic training, designing and machining components on manual and CNC-controlled lathes and milling machines. Basic electrical engineering training
- Mechanical processing: Here the focus is on using different and ultra-modern machine tools and their production processes.
- Electrical workshop: Here you learn how to manufacture different individual parts and assemblies, which you can use again afterwards in assembly or must assemble.
- Final assembly: In a team you put together the mechatronics prefabricated parts into complex construction machines, test them, and then finally put them into operation (mechanical and electrical).
- Programming station: You programme, test and change PLC programmes of various manufacturers.
In-house classes prepare you for exams and later working life.
- Dexterity and hand-eye coordination (e.g. when assembling circuit relays, replacing wear parts)
- Due diligence (e.g. when analysing and eliminating malfunctions)
- Technical understanding and manual skills (e.g. assembly of machines and plants from mechanical and electronic parts)
- Flexibility (e.g. adapting to rotating workplaces and conditions for assembly applications)
