Friedrichshafen, 15 July 2011. As in previous years, the specialist for propulsion and power solutions Tognum will be presenting the wealth of training opportunities offered by its subsidiary mtu at Friedrichshafen. What was previously known as ‘Training Workshop Open Day’ has been re-named ‘Tognum Take-off’ and will take place in mtu Plant 1 on Maybachplatz 1, Friedrichshafen. Before the application period enters its busiest phase in autumn, students, along with their parents and teachers, have the chance to find out more about their chosen vocation. Opening times are Thursday, 21 July, from one to five o'clock and Friday, 22 July, from eight to midday.
“Our career open days ‘Tognum Take-off’ are aimed at students from all educational institutions. We particularly want to address upper secondary school graduates and make them aware of our training portfolio and integrated degree programs,” explained Matthias Jobmann, head of human resources and operational services at Tognum. School-leavers can train not only as mechatronic technicians or industrial management assistants. As a partner of the Cooperative State University of Baden-Württemberg, Tognum offers various courses of higher study with a strong emphasis on practical application: for example electrical engineering focused on automation or mechanical engineering focused on production and management.
Visitors to the open days will be given exciting insights into the world of mechanics and electronics at Tognum. Depending on their area of interest, smaller groups will be formed for students to learn about specific vocations. Tours of the works will last from one to one-and-a-half hours. At the end of each tour, the students will be able to try out their skills on the machines in the Training Center. “Whoever finds himself spoilt for choice by our apprenticeships and cannot decide whether he wants to be a pattern shop technician, industrial mechanic or technical product designer – this was formerly known as a draftsman – is of course free to get a taste of them all,” said Martin Stocker, team leader for vocational training and integrated degree courses.
