Studies at the vocational academy

Study or training? Theoretical learning or practical work?

The solution: Simply combine theory and practice by completing a course at a vocational academy,
thus combining both training paths. Your studies will provide you with basic theoretical knowledge, while the practical period in the company will provide you with a reference point for your theoretical knowledge and anchor you in professional life right from the outset. This means you can assume responsibility even during your education and continue to develop important skills at an early stage.

Over six semesters in the vocational academy, you will lay down the theoretical groundwork for your future career path. Your final qualification will be a Bachelor of Engineering or Bachelor of Arts. Throughout the training period, you will also receive financial support. With good performance over the three years, you will lay the foundations for your future career at Jenoptik.
