School leavers at Atlas Copco IAS –
the start to your working life!

Study course at the dual university

Bachelor of Engineering, Electrical Engineering Program

The electrical engineering program teaches the automation of technical systems in detail. From basic sequential control in hardware right up to complex process automation and monitoring systems, you will gain extensive knowledge of hardware and software. As a student of electrical engineering you will be constructing and testing new equipment and systems. Your role in accompanying the entire process is an equally important task.

The structure

A three month theory block at the "Duale Hochschule Karlsruhe" alternates with a three month practical block at Atlas Copco IAS in Bretten. The foundation course starts by teaching the basics of electrical engineering, information technology and mechanical engineering. After this the focus lies on applications in these fields. 

After this you will get to know all technical and administrative departments. This gives you an early introduction to the culture, organization and internal processes at Atlas Copco IAS. Your colleagues will give you the opportunity to independently work on projects. The aim is to find out in which department you could imagine working in after your studies. This is the field in which you will concentrate during the main part of your course.
