Study and Work in Parallel at WEINMANN

Students have an amusing conversation

Your future starts here

Study and theory or training and practice? A combination of both is the best formula for a successful start to your career. Want to get initial professional experience in addition to an internationally-recognized higher education qualification? Want an intensive introduction to the business processes of the global market? Then study and work in parallel is the ideal solution for you! As a family-owned company, we consider it important to continue growing and to consolidate our market position both nationally and internationally. To do this, we need committed, enthusiastic, hardworking self-starters. We want to train and develop our future employees and management team ourselves. Exciting training content, project activities, and foreign placements are all included.

The benefits of study and work in parallel at WEINMANN:

  • Comprehensive practical and professional experience, even as you are still studying
  • Optimum mentoring from experienced staff throughout your whole course
  • Help design your training
  • As a self-starter, work independently
  • Foreign placement possible
  • Attractive remuneration during both theoretical and practical phases

Cooperation with Nordakademie college in Elmshorn: Study Industrial Engineering

This course includes a lot of variety. It simultaneously encourages you to think your way into two different spheres. As we focus both on the research and development of medical technology products and on selling them, there are a lot of interfaces between the technical and commercial spheres. To satisfy our requirements, employees need to feel at home in both spheres. 

During the course, you will find out what you enjoy most, whether it’s a job in supply chain management, service management or product management, for example. This is because you will get to know the whole company, both at home and abroad, in order to work out what your perfect job might be.

WEINMANN employee: dual student in research & development

My favorite thing is that I am relatively free to plan my study and work in parallel. On the one hand, this means I can adapt it to suit my needs perfectly and on the other, I can link it to the college’s curriculum.
