Design engineer EFZ, 4-year apprenticeship
The apprenticeship design engineer starts with a 50-day external designing basic course at the AZW training centre (Ausbildungszentrum Winterthur).
After the basic course, the company-internal training with the CAD-system “MEDUSA 4” starts and is accompanied by a step-by-step introduction into designing tools. Afterwards, the apprentices complete a six-month workshop internship at the in-house manufacturing department, where they get to know the different production processes.
The 2-year basic training is completed with an intermediate exam.
The 3rd and 4th apprenticeship year serve to deepen the knowledge in designing tools and to prepare for the final apprenticeship exam.
Depending on the apprenticeship year, the extra occupational educational training takes place on one or two days per week at the trade school in Bülach.
