Electrical engineering co-operative education program

In the electrical engineering co-operative education program, you will learn to design, plan and analyze technical solutions. In the practical part, you deal with complex electronic systems – on customer premises as well. The co-operative education program concludes with a graduation certificate from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (CIC) and a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering.

Electrical engineering course at KUKA

The electrical engineering co-operative education program is your entry point to electrical and operations technology. As an electrical engineer (Augsburg) or mechatronic (Bremen) at KUKA, you develop electrical components and circuits. You look after electric drives, the power supply, data processing and software development for complex technical tasks. In addition, you plan and design electronic systems, and analyze and solve technical problems.

In the electrical engineering co-operative education program at KUKA, you work with the latest robots and technologies and have a direct entry to Industrie 4.0. 

These are the principal tasks awaiting you during and after the electrical engineering co-operative education program:

  • Planning, analyzing and building electrical engineering structures
  • Developing and using electrical and electronic components and circuits
  • Developing software for complex technical tasks

Duration of the co-operative education program and graduation

The dual study takes three years or 4.5 years – depending on whether you are studying at KUKA in Bremen or in Augsburg. After you successfully complete the electrical engineering co-operative education program, you will qualify as an electronics technician in operations technology and gain the title of Bachelor of Engineering (B. Eng.).

Training locations at KUKA
