Bio- & Environmental Process Engineering

Studies with in-depth practice Duration: approx. 3.5 years

Here you will be largely involved in the work of the research and development department and help, for example, with the construction of test facilities. You will independently design test and inspection equipment and conduct series of tests on process engineering issues. But you can also be part of the additive manufacturing and project team, as is the project planning of a new work platform. Here you really get involved in the technical implementation and are also involved in service assignments with customers. The spectrum is as diverse as it is interesting.

Mechatronics & Digital Automation

Duration: approx. 3.5 years

You start in the mechatronics department with the practical basics of metal and electrical engineering together with the apprentices. In the second year, you get an insight into maintenance and are introduced to the work of the electrical department. Here, Industry 4.0 in particular plays a major role in relation to production facilities. As a link between the two departments, you will acquire practical programming skills so that you can then independently implement smaller projects, such as the recording, processing and evaluation of climate data from production.
