MAN Careers: Industrial mechanic with mechanical engineering (Bachelor of Engineering), combined course of study

Apprenticeship or academic study? With a combined course of study, you can do both. For example, become an industrial mechanic and study mechanical engineering, which involves a large amount of practical work, at Augsburg University of Applied Sciences. This will make the "dry theory" more tangible from the very beginning, making many concepts easier to understand. And the best part is: Once you complete your studies, you will already have your first job.

Depending on your level of apprenticeship/the progress you make in your studies, you may have the opportunity to put what you are learning into practice on actual practical projects.
