Precision engineer (m/f) – Mechanical engineering field

Precision engineers make components for machines and equipment with precision mechanics and assemble them in combination with electronic measurement and control components into functioning units. Here, as with the production of punching tools or steel molds, extreme precision is required.

Precision engineers frequently work on computer-controlled machine tools, but some of their work is also performed by hand. The work they do includes turning, milling, drilling and grinding. They are also taught how to use different measurement tools.

They learn about standards, check technical documents and strive to achieve continuous improvement of processes at work. This includes an economic perspective.

Duration/start of training:
3 1/2 years, commencing on 01/09

Good or excellent school leaving qualifications, (relevant grades: math/geometry & angle functions, physics, technology, German), interest in technology and manual skills, well-planned, systematic approach to work, willingness to learn

Planning and controlling sequences of operations, manufacturing workpieces and components, creating and optimizing programs, assembling and dismantling machines and equipment, performing maintenance and servicing tasks.

Subsequent fields of work:
Technical development, systems engineering, production departments in Germany and overseas
