"As a motorsport fan, I became aware of the company through MAHLE's sponsorships. I knew that an employer was waiting for me here who had many years of experience in the industry and at the same time kept striving to develop innovative technologies. This impression was only reinforced when I saw how much this spirit of innovation is embraced by the employees and passed on to the apprentices by the instructors."

"In school I took physics and economics as main subjects. That's why I was looking for a course of study that combined the technical and economic fields. I hit the bull's eye with industrial engineering (focus on electrical engineering). In the practical phases of my dual studies, I learn a lot that might be lost in a conventional course of study. This work experience has made me much more self-confident – for example, in dealing with my team and superiors.”
