Apprenticeship training at IDS

The Institute of Dynamics and Vibration Research is offering a three-and-a-half-year apprenticeship training program in industrial mechanics with the focus on precision engineering. The in-house training is served at joint workshop premises run by the Institute of Continuum Mechanics (IKM), the Institute of Mechatronic Systems (imes), and the Institute of Dynamics and Vibration Research (IDS). At IDS, the training takes place in our metal workshop which is equipped with high-quality five-axis CNC machines with integral CAD/CAM software and other most interesting machines. The wood workshop and the electrics workshop is supervised by our partner institutes imes and IKM. The working atmosphere is characterized by a lively exchange between all workshop members. As the training program is conjointly run by three institutes, the prototypes manufactured for research purposes as well as the maintenance and expansion of test setups can be on a more versatile level. Possible fields of work range from medical to mechanical engineering applications, providing apprentices with many fascinating insights during their training program.
