Deciding on the right profession is often not easy. The opportunity to get a taste of the desired profession is helpful in making this decision. EKATO offers pupils the opportunity to gain a good insight into the professions of a mechanical engineering company through an internship. This can be done as part of the german school career guidance (BOGY, BORS, etc.) or, of course, as a voluntary internship.


An apprenticeship at EKATO lays the foundation for a successful professional future. We offer commercial, technical and industrial apprenticeships for working in the office, in production and in assembly. You can find information (duration, procedure, prospects) on our numerous apprenticeships in our training brochure (German).

Dual Study Program

The advantages of a dual study program are a fixed income during the entire study period and the opportunity to apply the theoretical knowledge gained directly in practice and thus consolidate it. There is also the opportunity to gain intercultural experience during an internship of several weeks in one of our international subsidiaries. Information (duration, schedule, prospects) on our dual study programs can be found in our training brochure (German). Our partner universities:
