In addition, you will learn automation controls and programming, configure and layout control systems and wire control panels so that you can install and/or modernize production equipment. This will include familiarization with measurement sensors, PLCs and other programmable industrial controls, and closed loop control techniques.

Desired Qualifications:

Technical understanding, logical and abstract thinking and interest. Craft talent, a distinctive security consciousness and mathematical knowledge are also important conditions.

Education Requirements:

General Certificate of Secondary Education or comparable academic finish. Good grades in Mathematics, Physics, and German.

Our Mechanical Technicians for plant equipment build, install, and commission complex industrial plants. Based on technical drawings and operating instructions, the Mechanical Technician prepares individual components and assembles them in component groupings, piping systems, packaged process equipment systems. After completion of the functional test of assembled equipment in Wallenhorst, it must be broken down and packed for transport suitable for shipment to any customer destination in the world. Equipment is reassembled and installed at the customer jobsite.

Desired Qualifications:

Good technical understanding and team ability is important. An interest in physical and technical expiries, as well as the joy in the work are also important conditions. Applicants must be able to work carefully and responsibly and bring craft talent.

Education Requirements:

General Certificate of Secondary Education or comparable academic finish. Good grades in Mathematics, Physics, and German as well as a basic technical foundation.

Does a mixture of technology and design interest you? Then this vocational training program is the right one for you. As Technical Product Designer, you will use Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs to produce two- and three-dimensional construction plans and drawings. You will create the detailed basis for almost all of your colleagues in the production of machines and plants: the technical drawings. They give precise information about lengths, dimensions, angles, and materials of components. The components and systems are spatially represented from different views and perspectives – as finished product or broken out in exploded view of individual components or sub-assemblies. Material requirements will be calculated along with the parts lists required for manufacturing. The safety of the plant also belongs to your responsibilities. For example, you must beforehand identify any classified explosion risks of specific processes and filters; and plan for enclosures and components rated for the operating environment that reduce the hazard.

You should enjoy the following:

Working with personal computers, precision, mathematics, collaboration, and teamwork.
