Headshot of a vocational trainee
Current, voltage and network technology

You are given a licence here to solder. Hi, my name is Prisca and I am currently completing my vocational training at Volkswagen as an IT system electronics engineer. I learn here how to plan, install and keep networks up to date. I often have to save the day, when nothing is working any more. I have to quickly identify where the problem is and resolve it. That’s not a problem. I’m well trained to do this. Electrical engineering, software and IT hardware are some of the subjects covered by my training. This helps me to advise my colleagues as a skilled electrician and find a suitable solution. 

Sound exciting? Then apply right here, right now.
