The high school graduates will begin their training at Siemens primarily in technical areas. The company offers training, for example, in electronics and mechatronics. These apprenticeships are supplemented by dual programs at selected universities that combine academic qualifications with practical experience. Siemens is currently cooperating with these universities to help educate a total of 2,300 students enrolled in internationally recognized bachelor’s degree programs.
Siemens invests some €160 million a year in the education of young people. On average, there are about 40,000 applicants every year for the company’s vocational training positions.
Applications for the 2011 training year are already being accepted at www.siemens.de/ausbildung
