Co-operative education program in mechanical engineering

The co-operative education program in mechanical engineering is your entry point to mechanical design. You plan, analyze and resolve technical problems on our machines and devices, or you work on the components directly yourself. After completing your co-operative education program, you will be a trained industrial mechanic and Bachelor of Engineering.

Mechanical engineering course at KUKA

The co-operative education program in mechanical engineering will turn you into an expert for mechanical design. At KUKA in Augsburg, mechanical engineers primarily deal with large machines and robots. They repair them, check pressures and temperatures, connect controllers and manufacture components themselves. If something does not work, not only do they find the fault, they also analyze the cause and document the solution.

At the Bremen site the cooperative education program includes the areas sales and project management.

In your co-operative education program in mechanical engineering, we will also familiarize you with technical documents. You will read and interpret diagrams, and derive the correct measures and sequences of operations from them.

The co-operative education program in mechanical engineering is largely concerned with these fields of learning, for example:

  • Working with manufacturing plans, drawings and standards
  • Planning work processes, materials, tools and equipment
  • Working with metals and plastics using different technologies
  • Operating and installing electropneumatic and electrohydraulic controls


Duration of the co-operative education program and graduation

The co-operative education program in mechanical engineering takes 4.5 years at our site in Augsburg, four years in Bremen. When you complete the co-operative education program as an industrial mechanic (CIC), you will also qualify for the title of Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.).
