Dual course of study "mechanical engineering - engineering draftsman"
Unfortunatley we do not offer an apprenticeship training position in 2018.
Since 2010, AGO AG Energie + Anlagen offers the possibility of combining academic studies with an apprenticeship in cooperation with the University of Hof. In comparison to the typical working life starting with an apprenticeship which is followed by academic studies, students save up to two years with the dual course.
Moreover, their apprenticeship and internships absolved in the company will be financially compensated.
