As a partner company in dual study programmes you can provide a tailored training for university graduates in cooperation with the HWTK University. Due to the close link between theoretical studies and practical experience in the so called ‘split week’ model (20 hours per week training in the company, 20 hours per week studying at the HWK), we ensure a high level of orientation towards practical experience.
