Industrial Mechanic

Designing precision components and manufacturing them with special machines - that's what you'll learn with us as an industrial mechanic. At the end of your apprenticeship, you will also be able to produce sophisticated workpieces that our scientists need in their daily research work or when building prototypes. FBH trains an industrial mechanic every three years.

The training usually starts on September 1 each year - the next training start is planned for 2023.

  • You read technical drawings and plan the work steps
  • You manufacture workpieces and components yourself - you frequently use CNC milling machines for this purpose.
  • You program machine tools with modern CAD-/CAM-systems
  • You check whether the dimensions are correct and all parts fit together
  • You keep an eye on machines and systems - if there is a malfunction, you fix it
  • You assemble prototypes and custom-made products in the workshop or laboratory

  • 3.5 year apprenticeship (IHK qualification), which you can shorten by half a year if you perform well
  • Mixture of theory (vocational school) and practice (institute)
  • Varied work - you mostly produce one-offs and prototypes
  • A team that supports you fully
  • Remuneration according to TVAöD, 30 days vacation

  • A good intermediate school leaving certificate
  • Manual skills - you repair your bike yourself or assemble a cabinet so that it doesn't fall apart
  • Accuracy - Special designs for microtechnology are usually tiny. Therefore, you have to work particularly precisely
  • Ability to work in a team - you interact a lot with people and closely coordinate with them
