Dual studies

Dual studies offers the perfect combination of theory and practise. During the study course which lasts three years, you always spend three months at the dual university and three months at the company. At the company, you will pass through all departments relevant to your studies. This will give you initial insights into the operational processes. From the third term onwards, you will be working independently on projects. You can select a final assignment that reflects your subsequent field of activities at Witzenmann.

Study and practise under one roof

“Apart from sport, maths and physics were always my favourite subjects. What ultimately convinced me to study mechanical engineering was my participation in the "Schüler-Ingenieur-Akademie (SIA)" (student engineering academy). I also came into contact with Witzenmann through the SIA. As far as I am concerned, the benefits of a dual study course clearly lie in the three-month practical phases and small class sizes at the dual university. The remuneration gives me financial independence and allows me to fully concentrate on my studies. The dual university studies at Witzenmann are very well structured. I have worked in the areas of design, production planning, materials testing, product engineering, quality assurance and technology. During the preliminary eight-week practical training period between my final secondary school exams and studies I learned about basic manual and machine skills and various welding methods and gained an insight into tool construction and assembly.“

Student internship

Azubis Image Text

School days are nearing an end and some important questions need to be addressed: "What am I actually going to do now?", "What am I naturally good at?", "What could I enjoy doing?" You need to find out what suits you. You can do this through a BORS, BOGY placement or as a voluntary intern. At our training centre you can find out more about technical professions and test out your technical abilities.

You can apply in writing online via our job exchange, enclosing your CV and last school certificate. Also indicate the period in which you would like to carry out the practical training and your preferred profession.

Girls' Day

Girls' Day is all about nationwide awareness of "Women in technical professions". This gives female students the opportunity to try out technical occupations that require formal training for one day at our training centre. At Witzenmann we have known for a long time now that women and technology make an excellent match! A career in metalworking has a future and it can be a lot of fun!

You can register via the official Girls' Day homepage; bear in mind that places are limited!

SIA Image Text

SIA - "Schüler-Ingenieur-Akademie" (student engineering academy)

  • How do you get a metal bellows to fly?
  • Can a ship be operated with air?
  • Can a car also be fuelled by water?

You can find out the answers to these questions and many more yourself at the "Schüler-Ingenieur-Akademie" (SIA) (student engineering academy).

SIA is an initiative of the Südwestmetall organisation which works together with schools and universities as well as companies based in Baden-Württemberg. SIA gives sixth form high school students interested in the natural sciences and technology an opportunity to master exciting projects and challenging tasks in a team. This gives you the chance to test the water and find out whether you are suited to technical studies.

Do you attend the Theodor-Heuss or Hebel high school in Pforzheim, the Liese-Meitner high school in Königsbach or Remchingen high school? If so, you can register for the SIA in collaboration with Witzenmann at your school. We look forward to seeing you!

Berufswahl Kompass

Berufswahlkompass Metall (BWK) is a collaboration project between Südwestmetall, the employment agency and also various companies and schools in the region. The project which is supervised by BBQ is aimed at female secondary school students with an interest in technology.

Collaborating schools are the Konrad-Adenauer Schule in Pforzheim and the Willy-Brandt-Realschule in Königsbach-Stein, and 30 students from each school are allowed to take part in BWK.


Nothing beats direct contact. We would be pleased to speak to you in person and answer any questions you may have.
