MAN Careers: Industrial mechanic and mechanical engineering (B.Eng.)

Do you want to follow a solid apprenticeship course or would you rather study? This is not a snap decision that you have to make at MAN. If you enjoy electronics and technology, we offer you the opportunity to get a apprenticeship to become a mechatronics engineer whilst simultaneously studying mechanical engineering at Ostfalia (University of Applied Sciences). This will give you the best possible start to your career and the opportunity to develop in a variety of ways.

After first completing a practical course in apprenticeship at MAN Truck & Bus in Salzgitter, you will begin your studies at Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences in Wolfenbüttel (www.ostfalia.de). The second and fifth semesters are practical semesters, which you will complete with us at the MAN production site in Salzgitter. After the fifth semester, you will sit the vocational examination organised by the German Chamber of Commerce and Industry. Your studies will then focus more on technical aspects, in consultation with MAN Truck & Bus AG. This is when you will decide which of the three fields of study you wish to pursue, with the associated core and elective modules:

  • Production and logistics
  • Mechatronics
  • Construction and development
