Future-proof with a dual study programme – ILFA offers two dual study programmes in cooperation
Choosing a career is not easy these days. There are numerous options open to young people, and deciding whether it would be better to study is not exactly trivial. Numerous dual study programmes have therefore emerged as a good combination option. As a PCB manufacturer, we can first of all confirm that an apprenticeship or a job in the electrical industry offers the best future prospects and development opportunities. Over the years, we have also expanded our training programme more and more. A topic that is very important to ILFA HR Manager Martin Soethe: “Training has always been highly relevant for us. At the moment, however, we have set ourselves the goal of training even more and preparing the skilled workers of tomorrow here on site. Our dual study programmes also fit seamlessly into this concept.”
We currently offer two dual study programmes in cooperation with Hanover’s universities of applied sciences: The training-integrated dual study programme leading to a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology with Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts and the dual study programme leading to a Bachelor of Science in IT Security with Leibniz University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
The dual study programme leading to a Bachelor of Engineering in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology includes full vocational training as an electronics technician for industrial engineering. There is also a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. The degree programme therefore takes a total of 4.5 to 5 years. Topics taught include programming and software systems, distribution of information in computer networks, identifying weak points in IT, handling security emergencies and much more. After completing the integrated degree programme, there are numerous opportunities for employment in the electrical industry.
The dual study programme leading to a Bachelor of Science in IT Security is also an exciting subject area with numerous possible applications in IT. The dual study programme lasts a total of 3 years and covers the learning fields of programming and software systems, distribution of information in computer networks, identifying weak points in IT, handling security emergencies and much more.
The German electronics industry is becoming increasingly important, especially in light of the recently passed “European Chips Act”. It is the second largest industrial sector after mechanical engineering, even ahead of the automotive industry. With the European Chips Act, politicians are now also endeavouring to strengthen research and technology leadership. The aim is to increase domestic production volumes, eliminate the shortage of skilled labour and strengthen the entire supply chain. This is an important topic to which our Managing Director Thomas Michels is also committed. He carries out valuable association work and brings together the players and decision-makers from politics and business. Thanks to his excellent networking, he is working on framework conditions that will also strengthen domestic PCB production and provide it with the necessary tailwind.
In combination with our printed circuit board production for state-of-the-art applications in Hanover, this opens up exciting and future-proof fields of work for young people. Applications can be submitted immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org, we look forward to hearing from you!
