School internship

We know how difficult it can be to choose the right job. We would like to accompany you on your path, and actively support you during this crucial time.

We offer school internships (mandatory or voluntary) to give you initial insights into the working world. Take a look behind the scenes and get to know our fields of work and products, as well as our culture and the great people behind it.

Are you interested in seeing what the everyday work of a mechatronics engineer is like? You can discover this at our sites in Waiblingen and Crailsheim. At the latter, you can also get a first-hand look at the profession of an industrial mechanic. Perhaps this will be your first step into a career at Syntegon.

If you are interested in a school internship, please get in touch with our contacts listed below. Include a brief letter of interest (personal motivation, professional and personal qualifications, personal interest) and a copy of your last grade report with your application. You can send us all documents by e-mail.

We look forward to hearing from you!

FAQ

You apply online by submitting your resume, cover letter and your latest transcripts. Afterwards you will receive a link to an online test. Once you have completed it, we will review your application and test score. Based on this, we will create a shortlist. If you have made it to the next round, we will be in touch to get to know you better, either in a personal interview or on a selection day. After that, we will get back to you with an acceptance or rejection decision. Were you accepted? Then we look forward to welcoming you to the first day of your apprenticeship at Syntegon in September!

Every year, you can apply from May onwards for the following apprenticeship year via our online portal. Usually, all positions are filled by the end of the previous year. This means that you should apply for your apprenticeship one year before you finish school.

Your monthly salary in the first year of apprenticeship will be approx. €1,000 (gross). In the following apprenticeship years, this will increase incrementally.

To be eligible for an apprenticeship with us, you need at least a secondary modern school qualification.

Let’s take the mechatronics apprenticeship as an example: In your first year of training, you will be taught the basics to ensure that you can start the second year well prepared for how the company runs. In the next step, you will deepen and further develop your previous knowledge. You will stay 6-8 weeks in each department that is relevant for you, in order to get to know the company inside and out. In the final year of training, you will be assigned to your target area, the one in which you plan to continue working after the end of your apprenticeship. Exam preparation and further training will take place in the workshops. In this way, you will be ideally prepared for your final exam. Throughout your training at Syntegon, you will be mentored by your instructor.

You have a feedback session with your instructor every six months and as required.

You have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of training courses. These include a first aid course, technical English courses, and the opportunity to complete a crane operator’s license. Moreover, you can acquire an entrance qualification for a university of applied sciences while completing your apprenticeship with us.

You will start your career as an internal assembler. Soon, however, you will join more experienced coworkers on external assemblies. Moreover, you will have the chance to advance to the level of a special assembler or lead assembler, and to broaden your horizons in other areas.

Dual studies

A combination of theoretical information and practical know-how will prepare you most effectively for your future career. Accordingly, we offer dual studies in partnership with German Cooperative State Universities.

Today, practical experience is increasingly sought after when starting a career. The ability to show that you know your way around the working world is invaluable. At Syntegon, we offer you the opportunity to gain such experience as part of our dual study programs, in which you can assume responsibility for your own projects or take on international assignments.

Dual studies at Waiblingen and Schopfheim


The 3-year dual study programs in Waiblingen and Schopfheim are jointly offered with our partner DHBW. Dual students regularly switch back and forth between the university and our company in a three-month cycle.

In addition, dual students can use what they learn in lectures by directly applying it in practice. Throughout your studies, your manager at Syntegon will support you in your continuous development.

To be eligible for the program, you must have obtained a university entrance qualification. Once you have, we look forward to receiving your application.
