"At EDAG, I can be sure that I will always find the time - and more importantly the support - to prepare properly for upcoming exams."Leon, dual system student studying electrical engineering & computer engineering.

Swotting up on theory, putting this straight into practice - and earning money at the same time? A dual study course offers high school graduates great chances and can give your career the boost it needs. We offer every young talent the right study programme to advance their personality and career. America, Portugal, Poland - our dual system students have the opportunity to spend a semester at one of our branches abroad, and gather some intercultural experience. 

These courses take the form of periods of attendance at a University of Cooperative Education or Applied Sciences during which theory is taught,  alternating with periods at EDAG when this is put into practice. Early practical experience is invaluable nowadays.

Our dual courses are as diverse as your talents and strengths. Choose the right one for you from our wide range of courses!

APPRENTICESHIP TRAINING-INTEGRATED STUDY COURSES – THE DIFFERENT KIND OF DUAL STUDY COURSE

This apprenticeship is the ideal preparation for your seamless transition to the study course. An apprenticeship training-integrated study course lasts about 5 years. This means that, in a relatively short period of time, you will have two certificates in your pocket.  This ideal combination is the perfect way to prepare for working life.

Working in our project teams gives you first hand practical experience, and means that you take on responsible tasks from the very outset. Don't worry: our success rate is 99%! Earn money during your apprenticeship and university course, and spend a semester abroad at one of our international locations.

Today, numerous committed training supervisors guarantee a modern learning environment and outstanding training quality: our apprentices have repeatedly won awards at state and national level for their excellent performance.

We foster a culture of appreciation and team spirit. Together, we are innovative, develop new technologies and set trends in engineering. We embrace change and growth. Our expertise is the engine that drives our vision.

We want to pass this expertise, acquired in the course of more than 50 years, on to our young talent, and we count here on their passion and the way they thrive on challenges, to create something new with EDAG.

Any more questions? We have the answers.

  • Yes. All the positions advertised are vacant. As soon as we have filled a vacancy, we remove it from all our channels.

  • We generally offer a great many opportunities, and these vary according to the requirements of our divisions. 

    For technically gifted people, we offer professions in the development of vehicles and production facilities. You will also find jobs in future-related fields such a software and digitalisation, electrics/electronics, and modern project management. And, of course, we also need administrative junior staff in our commercial and IT departments. Our job portal will give you the best overview of our current job offers.

  • Paper applications are a thing of the past. You can let us have your digital application via the Application button in the job advertisement in question. You can find all up-to-date job advertisements for your career entry here. Please note that we are also unable to accept any applications by e-mail. You can find further information on our application process in the appropriate tab. 

  • Of course. Our job advertisements describe the ideal candidate - but what interests us is the person behind the certificates.

  • Personal covering letter

    CV in table format

    Current references

    School certificates, etc.

  • We have summarised these for you in a checklist:

    ✓ The covering letter: address your covering letter to the relevant contact person from the training team. He or she is named in the job advertisement. Tell us why you want to start your career at EDAG, and give your reasons for choosing that particular job. 

    ✓ The CV: it is best to if your CV is in table format, so that it is clear and easy to understand. This is where you show us what you have done so far, in chronological order. This includes the school you attend/attended, any previous professional experience, but we would also like to know about your hobbies, as these tell us something about your personality. 

    ✓ The application photo: it is of course entirely up to you whether or not you include a photo with your application. If you do decide to send a photo, make sure it has been professionally taken

    ✓ In general, we recommend that you bundle your application documents in a PDF file. The maximum size allowed is 15 MB. The standard file formats (such as MS Office, PDF, ZIP) are supported.

    ✓ Pay special attention to spelling and grammar mistakes. Maybe you could get a friend to check you application for you? People often fail to see their own mistakes. Don't worry, this happens to all of us. 

    ✓ The overall picture is what counts. There is no need for you to experiment with colours or anything like that. The important thing is for your application to make a good impression on us.

  • Yes, just once. This has many advantages: once your digital profile has been created, you can see your outstanding applications in the overview at any time. If you would like to apply for another position, this can be done with just a few clicks. In a hurry? You can temporarily save your profile, and continue at another time.

  • Should you receive a rejection, the documents will be deleted after 6 months at the latest, unless you have agreed to your data being stored for 24 months.

  • Should you be interested in several jobs, then of course you can apply more than once. We will,however, need an application from you for every job. The reason: behind each job, there is a specific department, facility and recruiting team. For data protection reasons, we are not allowed to pass on your application within the company.

  • You can always send an unsolicited application. This means that your application is not for a particular job; instead, you describe your ideas and time frame in your covering letter. Our training team will then check to see whether we can still offer you a suitable job. You can send an unsolicited application here. We look forward to receiving your application, good luck!

  • We do not wish to endanger you or our employees in the present situation.
    As far as possible. therefore, we avoid personal contact in the application process, and conduct the interviews via video conference. Should the current nationwide rules permit a meeting as long as all safety precautions are taken, and everyone involved agrees, then we will be glad to conduct the interview in person. 

  • In all of our EDAG buildings, masks are currently mandatory. Please wear a face mask as soon as you enter an EDAG building. We maintain the recommended distance: for example, lifts may only be used by one person, and we ensure that meeting rooms are big enough. We don't want to be rude, but we currently refrain from shaking hands. If you do not feel well on the day of the interview or have symptoms of illness, please get in touch with your recruiting team contact immediately, so that we can arrange a new appointment. In addition, the generally valid hygiene rules also apply. If there are any other changes or regulations relevant to your interview, we will of course inform you in the invitation to the interview or by telephone.

  • Of course. As you can see from our job offers, we are still looking for active support. We look forward to receiving your application.

  • Get in touch with your recruiting team contact and inform them of the situation. We will find a solution.

  • We are in contact with the organisers of the various trade fairs. If a trade fair has to be postponed or held virtually on account of the current situation, we post this information on our Recruiting Event page. You can find out about all of our fairs, activities and events there. 

  • No, not for an internship. We look for interns at different times, depending on the department/division, or as required. All the positions advertised are currently vacant. If you find an internship that would suit, you should not waste any time, but apply straight away. We look forward to hearing from you. You can find vacancies for internships here.
