Field of Activity
Electronics engineers are needed for manufacturing, testing, and troubleshooting high-end real-time vision and high-speed control systems. These systems are for information and communication technology or measurement and testing technology. Electronics engineers work in a wide range of areas. They work mainly in medium-sized and larger industrial companies, which manufacture, assemble, and maintain electronic systems, appliances, and components. Traditional tasks include single-unit production, switch cabinet construction, apparatus engineering, and circuit board production, including the professional soldering of individual components. To guarantee the best possible work in this area, we expect familiarity in working with ERP and PPS systems, qualified knowledge of materials, and good communication skills.
Secondary school leaving certificate (Realschulabschluss), A-levels, or equivalent qualification, preferably with a technical focus.
